Cherish Our Children International

For 25 years, Cherish Our Children International (COCI) has worked around the globe to help at-risk children. These children often live on the very razor's edge of survival and we focus on programs that help tip the balance in their favor.

Our signature U.S. program, the No More Victims Family works in schools to help the teen children of incarcerated parents. The odds are stacked against these young men and women, but No More Victims provides them with the skills they need to succeed in school and go on to live successful, productive lives.

September 23, 2018
 Houston, TX

I'm doing something different for my birthday this year. I'm running a 5k with Team COCI on September 23 to raise awareness and money for Cherish Our Children International (COCI) and our No More Victims program in Houston that gets the students of incarcerated parents EDUCATED, NOT INCARCERATED.

The high school kids in our program flourish. Even though national statistics show that the likely future of a child of an incarcerated parent is to not graduate high school and to end up in prison themselves, the students in our program (at Worthing, Furr and Sterling High Schools) thrive, graduate, and head on to college, trade school or the military.

In fact, once again this year every student in our program graduated and every student was accepted to post-secondary education, Yep, college--not their predictable future. This year we also had one PhD and several Masters degrees awarded to our kids and more heading to graduate school.

Please support this critical program by making a donation (or at least wishing me Happy Birthday and good luck on race day)!  Your contribution will help this critical program and these vulnerable children thrive and excel.  Thank you, Rob
