Cherish Our Children Inc.

For 25 years, as Cherish Our Children International, COCI worked with vulnerable children around the globe.   Now we are charting a new course, one that will focus nearly all of our efforts on solving a problem that is close to home – the trauma that having a parent in prison inflicts on children in America.  Our No More Victims program works with children of incarcerated parents in Houston. We think it is one of the most effective programs at serving this incredibly vulnerable population of children. 

To ensure the growth of this remarkable program, we are now focusing almost all of our funds on expanding No More Victims to help more children in Houston, Texas and America.  The teenagers in No More Victims often live on the very razor's edge of survival and we focus on programs that help tip the balance in their favor. Our program provides them with the skills they need to succeed in school and go on to live successful, productive lives.
