MissionThrough the sustained engagement of low-income and working families, KOCO develops multi-generational leaders who impact the decision-making process and public policies, improving the quality of life in our local communities.
KOCO's organizing agenda is directly informed by its constituency, the low-income and working families within the North Kenwood, Oakland, and its adjacent communities. KOCO's organizing approach engages residents in identifying the issues that they want to see addressed, and facilitating the planning, strategizing and training opportunities to aid residents in addressing issues.
