I am Dr. Kimberly Kimbrough-Edwards, the Executive Director of There is Life After Life, Inc. Our organization is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit, that was founded in 2018 to introduce a “circle of life,” educational program for those affected by suicide and/or suicide ideation. We serve individuals and their families, throughout the entire Houston Metropolitan area and beyond. Our sole mission is to reach as many people suffering from mental illness, WORLD-WIDE! Our aim is to cultivate a purpose of living within individuals to get them back thriving in life, with a healthy, mental mindset.
We do this by providing resources such as financial funding/grants/scholarships, mentorship programs, mental illness/grief counseling, life skills for mental stability through educational events and/or workshops/seminars, and by connecting with other similar organizations for community support. We believe our organization can make an impact in the lives of those who may be suffering in silence.
The known risks to the families we serve, within our communities, are well-documented and include but are not limited to, misuse and abuse of alcohol or other drugs, depression, access to lethal means, association to someone who has died by suicide, bullying, social isolation, chronic disease and disability, and stress resulting from prejudice and discrimination.
Our initiatives support a stimulating economy, promote healthy self-esteem, decrease suicide ideation and/or suicide, reduce social isolation and discrimination, increase leadership development, and educates on suicide prevention and awareness.
Your support is needed. Our organization has need of donations in the form of monetary gifts to include: cash donations, store/business gift cards, visa gift cards, sponsorships, and business supplies for educational workshops. We appreciate your support in helping those who suffer from mental illness as well as those who have lost loved ones to suicide!
