The Community of Caring ( COC )

Posted by Kevin W Womble Sr on March 14, 2013 at 12:35 PM



The Community of Caring (COC) was founded in 1980 by the Rev. Charles and Mother Mary Beth Kennedy to respond to unmet human needs: hunger, homelessness, illness and others.

 

The agency was incorporated in 1983 as a non-profit human services organization that has a board of directors, staff, budgets, audits and other characteristics of a formal organization. There is also the informal level of COC, in which members simply pledge to do an act of kindness every day.

 

The mission of the Community of Caring is to help impoverished people throughout the world to meet their unmet needs, both physical (shelter, food and clothing) and spiritual, so far as resources permit.

 

This is to be done in a caring and compassionate way, reflecting the love of Christ, so as to preserve the dignity of the individual.

 

Elder Charles C. Kennedy and Mother Mary Beth Kennedy founded the Community of Caring in 1980. It is registered with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as a private voluntary organization. There are independent local chapters in 5 U.S. cities and in 8 countries in Africa and the Caribbean.



Our Philosophy...

 

Our philosophy is based on the premise that kindness and caring remain relevant in today's world. We feel that God's love flowing through others can change the world. We believe that love heals broken people, transforms shattered lives and empowers individuals to become positive forces for good.

 

Thanks to dedicated staff and volunteers we have helped thousands of people throughout the years. We don't just provide basic physical necessities; we also feed the heart and spirit. People need love, acceptance, and a feeling that they can make a difference. COC provides a healing, nurturing community which makes this possible.

 

Services are given based on need and without regard to race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.

 

Community of Caring is committed to accountability and good stewardship of resources
