Cherish Our Children International

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.

Please help me raise money for C.O.C.I. I will be running 5k on Sunday, 9/27/15. You can donate as little or as much as you would like. I have never completed a 5k but how can I not support this great program for children whose parents did not or could not provide a path for a successful life. Please help me help the children. I have put some information about C.O.C.I. below for your reference.

At home in the United States, COCI, is supporting No More Victims Inc. This program's focus is to assist at risk children in preventing the continuing Cycle of addiction, abuse, violence and incarceration by providing a safe facility for them to go.

Thank you for your support!
