Christian Outreach Planning Associates (COPA) has been expanding its outreach throughout northern California in the past three years. The need to develop effective programs for at-risk youths has become necessary in major cities throughout the United States. This is a reflection of the dilemma of an economic downturn that has left many that are desperate to turn to crime. Indicative of this fact is the 25% increase in violent crimes in our inner cities. COPA has identified an opportunity for offering training to these youths that are in need of these programs within a 100 mile radius of their location.Christian Outreach Planning Associates requires funding totaling $4,800,000. The funds will be used for the construction of our new facility to provide larger training groups, the required equipment, furniture and fixtures; and working capital for the initial operation of the business.
