Who We Are

The CCSOC was formed in response to the Atlanta child slaying in 1981. A non-profit organization, the CCSOC is committed to the purpose of saving the youth of the community. It works to prevent any occurrence of violence that would jeopardize the safety of a child due to causes inherent in community living. 

CCSOC can change the world. In today’s society the CCSOC  offers countless opportunities for adolescents and young adults. For instance, teenage pregnancy is always a main concern in the urban community.

 

“The United States continues to have the highest rates of teenage pregnancy and birth among developed countries.” (Minnick, 2011)

Not only is under age sex an issue, you should include gang violence and suicide as well.  According to the 2012 U.S. Census an average of 20% of current high school students are expected to graduate (Census, 2012).

CCSOC Solution

CCSOC solution is to open the minds of our impressionable youth and illustrate to them the positive alternative avenues to express themselves.  Teach them self-esteem self-confidence, self-control, self-reliance along with a talent and a trade. There is a need for positive reinforcements and positive role models. 

 

As of 2017 CCSOC has reached out and gained support from many established institutions in the Dallas Fort Worth area.  We have obtained a following in the neighborhood of over 10,000 volunteers, sponsors and fans. Social media numbers are climbing and are adding new followers’ every day. CCSOC can reach $1 million dollars after 5 additional years of positive productivity.  The future milestones CCSOC sets to accomplish are basic yet promising.  We plan to employ over 20 people for different projects and productions. We also plan to recruit over 100 students into to the Scholarship and Mentorship program by 2019.

CCSOC Umbrella

The organization seeks to reach out to those children in the community who will not benefit from traditional agency offerings. Acting as an umbrella agency, the CCSOC works with all groups dedicated to the welfare of young people.  We are extremely proud of our track record; we have provided:

  • formula for hungry babies,

  • Easter baskets,

  • and safe Halloween activities at the Harambee Festival.

We made holidays for kids for whom the occasion might just have been another day. We sponsor classes and seminars in such areas as:

  • cultural awareness,

  • the arts

  • and safety in the home.

 

Perhaps we influenced a future doctor or nurse or fireman through our Annual Career Day.
