Cross Over Community Development
Welcome to COCD
Our mission is to function as a resource center for immigrants and refugees. We are committed to advocate, educate, and facilitate connections to help immigrant and refugee families achieve and maintain self-sufficiency and to successfully integrate and participate in their new communities.
We also aim to raise public awareness about immigrants and refugees to increase their visibility and to change public attitudes for the better.
Where there are needs, we aim to investigate, understand, and present solutions.
Get the latest news, photos and videos spotlighting our new programs and stories told by immigrants and refugees.
