2012 was a monumental year for CCOM.  Several noteworthy 2012 accomplishments include:

  1. Being awarded the 2012 Governor's Award for Volunteerism and Community Service,
  2. Expanding our partnership with the Richmond Police Department, Richmond Public Schools, and the Center for Neighborhood Enterprise, to operate our second Violence-Free Zone; this one located within crime-ridden Armstrong High School, and 
  3. Opening our third thrift store, located in Richmond's West End


For 2016, CCOM's goals include:

  1. Engaging more children, teens and families in CCOM's many outreach programs,
  2. Increasing promotion of the life-changing programs CCOM offers, and opening a licensed, residential treatment center for men and women with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health issues.
Needs
  1. Volunteers for our weekly Saturday program that serves inner-city children ages 5-12
  2. Donations of plastic eggs and individually-wrapped candy (no chocolate) for our annual Easter Egg Hunt serving over 1,100 children and teens
  3. Donations of new backpacks and school supplies for 1,200 children ages 5-12
  4. Donations of new, unwrapped Christmas presents valued at $20 or more for children ages 5-12
  5. Sponsorship of men and women participating in CCOM's free, residential drug and alcohol recovery program; costs CCOM approximately $1,800 per each participant's stay of six months.  The CCOM serves approximately 200 participants a year.
