What Is COCO

Coalition of Community Organizations

COCO’s mission is to help facilitate the flow of information in order to educate, empower, and enhance the lives of individuals and families with the goal of helping them make informed decisions in an effort to obtain healthy and sustainable communities.  COCO’s Vision: The distribution of information to this generation of communities and the next.

The Coalition of Community Organizations (COCO) originated in 2008 through the work of dedicated members from several community organizations, and residents in Houston and surrounding areas. These groups began working together to make sure that community interests are represented at the city, state, and national levels, and that elected officials, corporations, businesses, law enforcement, and clergy have a vested interest in our communities.

Our first endeavor together was and continues to be, to register voters and encourage eligible voters to get out to vote. Taken seriously, the quote from Hosea 4:6 which states, “my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge,” has made us more determined to make sure that each person or organization on our distribution list is more aware of the events, critical information, and resources that affect our communities.

We provide community information through our mailing list concerning healthcare, education, the environment, criminal justice, and immigration, just to mention a few of the issues that are relevant to the stakeholders in our communities.

Our future goal is to become a powerbase within communities that is politically, economically, socially, academically, and spiritually strong to increase community involvement.
