Connecting Attendees with Rewarding Experience & Service
COAA Cares was created in early 2020 on the heels of a wildly successful event during COAA’s fall (2019) conference in Atlanta. Conference attendees constructed wooden rocking chairs for children in support of CHRIS 180
, an Atlanta organization that seeks to “provide children, adults, and families with high-quality, trauma-informed behavioral health
services and support systems.”
The popularity of this – and the broader sense that COAA and its events ought to incorporate similar “give back” activities – led to the creation of COAA Cares.
COAA Cares aspires to:
• Achieve a high level of inclusive and hands-on participation that offers attendees a chance to engage with one another and the broader community.
• Create awareness and establish a network of relationships with peers at COAA and within the broader community through the act of collaboration that will grow and flourish over time.
• Develop a legacy of meaningful interaction that provides positive outcomes, awareness of the cause, and an opportunity for ongoing support of communities.
• Provide a fun and memorable experience that is well-organized and rewarding.
