Tomorrow will be better than yesterday because of
our choices and actions today

Serving Public Interest Advocates

Public interest advocates are to society as white blood cells and antioxidants are to the body. They help improve the environment, our educational systems, the political process, wellness promotion, social services, and bring healing to the world. By empowering those working in the public interest, we boost the immune system of the planet. Although this website is primarily for the purpose of serving such people, anyone can benefit from the information and principles offered.

Mission Possible – Improving Quality of Life

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, communities, and society by: Holistically empowering all people to achieve their greatest potential so they may cooperatively work together in bringing permanent healing and peace to the entire earth.

But How?

You may be asking… “But, WHAT specifically are you talking about?”

This is specifically what we’re talking about:

Ensuring that the principles set forth in the The Universal Declaration of Human Rights are fully available to all people, and supporting the 17 areas of individual and societal wellbeing itemized in the 17 sustainable development goals of the United Nations.

Start Here – The Life Map

Our Life Map is a good place to start for self-assessing how balanced your life is.

Reader Focused. Not Revenue Focused.

This site is focused on better serving its readers. Site design is guided by a simple question: What best serves the needs and interests of site visitors? So, we offer content without obtrusive or irrelevant advertising.


Resources for Life began back in the 20th Century as one of the original Internet communities. [View Archive of Site]

Who We Are

Simply put: We are you!  Much of the content on this site is reflective of the many visitors and members from around the world who contribute content and offer feedback. We call it Co-op Internet. Site design, editing, and layout are all provided by Resources for Life Technology Services free of charge. Send us your favorite stories, links, photos, and other content. We will spell-check, edit, and format the content and then put it on the site.


The information on this site includes documents, articles, writings, and reference information that is concise yet effective when applied. The content includes global, national, and local (Iowa City) information.

A Model Website

This website is maintained and designed with best practices so that it can be used as a template or example for others to follow. We’re not saying the site is perfect, but the general structure of the site and categories of information offered are something that every website can benefit from having.

No Advertising

Our site has no annoying advertising such as banner ads, pop-up ads, or animated Java ads. Instead, we offer unobtrusive relevant links, when appropriate, to products available through our online store. When links are provided to external sites, every effort is made to ensure that sites we link to do not use pop-up advertising or deceptive advertising.

Visitor Feedback and Analysis Usage

In addition to responding to visitor feedback and emails, we use two services to evaluate how people arrive at our site and how they use our site: Google Analytics and StatCounter.

By evaluating website usage reports, we are able to invest more time into web pages that are being used more frequently. Content can be expanded and improved to better serve the needs of our site visitors. We’re able to see what search results are sending people to our site and then provide expanded information to serve those searches better. When people land on our site, we want them to find exactly what they were looking for.

Even without any direct feedback from site visitors, we’re able to make changes to the site based on visitor experiences. Using these methods and others, our efforts are focused effectively and efficiently where they will produce the greatest good. Our Privacy Statement ensures that your information will not be sold or shared to third-parties for commercial use.

Shared Files

We use Box.net for file sharing. When files are available, they will be posted to our public storage area on the Box.net website.
