COA Youth & Family Centers’ 15th Annual Oscar Experience Gala

     Since 1906, COA Youth & Family Centers has been supporting Milwaukee families through our five core program areas: Early Education, Family Services, Youth Development, Community Services including Adult Basic Education/GED, and Camping.  COA helps Milwaukee children, teens, and families reach their greatest potential through a continuum of educational, recreational, and social work programs offered through its two urban community centers and rural camp facility. In 2012-2013, COA will serve over 15,000 at 22 locations, including the Riverwest and Goldin Centers and Camp Helen Brachman.

     COA Youth & Family Centers is currently one of the top ten children and family services organizations in the nation as rated by Charity Navigator, a national evaluator of nonprofit organizations.  Ratings are based on financial efficiency, accountability, and transparency. COA holds the highest 4-star Charity Navigator rating and is the only 4-star rated children and family services nonprofit organization in Wisconsin.
