COA is Building for the Future.

The Building for the Future campaign is a $5 million capital campaign that will support
immediate and long-term agency capital needs, providing safe and secure learning

environments for children and families served through COA’s continuum of programs,
and significantly improving the quality of life in the neighborhoods we serve.




Campaign Progress

Your support can help us achieve our $5 million goal... and serve thousands of children and families for years to come.


The Building for the Future campaign is designed to impact the agency, its participants, and the community in three significant ways.

1. Expanded capacity through new program spaces.






2. Enhanced infrastructure.




3. Address capital needs through our next decade of service.
