Get Educated. Not Incarcerated.
COCI began its journey in 1993, when a group of determined friends worked together to address the plight of starving orphans in Romania. Cherish Our Children International was born from that effort and it went on to help thousands of children around the globe.
After a quarter-century, we have made a dramatic change, focusing on one, game-changing program in the United States – No More Victims. We have also changed our name to Cherish Our Children Inc, to reflect our new focus.
Marilyn Gambrell, the visionary founder of No More Victims, talks about the program and what it means to children experiencing the trauma of parental incarceration.
