Our Mission

COCI creates sustainable solutions to inspire and positively impact vulnerable children, their families, and communities. 

Our VIsion

We envision a world where every student has the resources and tools necessary to create a healthy and successful life.



We act honestly and ethically, with responsibility, accountability, and transparency, and we have the courage to do the right thing. We are worthy stewards of the lives and resources entrusted to us.


We honor the intrinsic dignity and worth of each person. We treat others the way that we would want to be treated. We celebrate and capitalize on the richness inherent in diversity.


We choose to be of service. We embrace our roles as servant leaders with passion, creativity, and above all, humility.


We work as a team, achieving more collectively than individually. We are committed to creating synergy by encouraging each other and working collaboratively.

Our Story

COCI Heart Rectangle (3).png

Our journey stretches nearly 30 years, from our beginnings rescuing HIV-positive children

from Romanian orphanages, to our work today empowering students of incarcerated parents. Throughout history, we have sought out sustainable solutions for the problems trauma can inflict on children.


Today we are proud to be able to help the next generation of students who have a parent in prison by providing resources and tools for success at home, at school, and in their communities.
