The mission of Coco Coalition is to improve the quality of life for black women through mental health resources, programs, and services. Prior to the pandemic, African Americans visited the emergency department for mental health-related resources more than any other group and the effects of pandemic has gravely increased the need for mental health resources. Though it is a small nonprofit, Coco has hosted 4 community events, awarded 10 academic scholarships, supplied women in Aburi, Ghana with 350 packs of feminine care products, and provided employment opportunities for the community in the past 5 years. “We are excited to expand our community offering to include more mental health services for black women in Oakland. One of our guiding intentions is to provide resources to this generation that the previous generations of Black women would have benefited from and experienced a different quality of life”.
