COA Spring 2022 Newsletter

We at COA Community Outreach Alliance are very grateful to have received a generous donation from Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley. The check was handed to Joanie Angeli by Rev. Alice Reid. Barbara Lindquist contacted Joanie and shared that COA was the recipient of this donation due to the good work she & others have observed that COA does in the community. Barbara and Kevin volunteer at the COA Food Connection (which offers free food to the community every other Monday) and has seen performers from COA Entertainment at community events and knows of some Non-profits in the community that COA teams up with.

The Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley have invited any interested COA performers to join Jewel Tones Choir

The AIM High (previously known as Thrive Alive) series began March 30th for teens (13-17 yrs). It is a great way to armor them up against the many dangers and obstacles they are faced with in today’s world. From Trending Drug Cultures, Social Media and Self-Esteem, to Nutrition and Eating for a Sustainable World. AIM High offers a 7-week program of educational workshops, mixed with fun social activities and creative art projects!

TGIF Socialization is a safe space for teens. Most teens just want to hangout and have fun.  Thanks to The Noble Path Foundation every TGIF provides that space. The events held here are for teens 13-18 years old to have a safe fun place on Friday nights. They also offer free guitar lessons there every Friday.

There was a panel discussion supporting Mental Health.  The moderator was David Paddison was from Connect-OC with a panel of local young adult advocates and a mental health professional from the Wellness and Prevention Center
It was emphasized that local resources are available for those that may be struggling with mental health and the event was accompanied by a resource fair featuring several local agencies that offer mental wellness resources and services. As a way to encourage engagement at the resource fair, COA held an opportunity drawing (sponsored by Chris Walker Real Estate-Coldwell Banker) for attendees and gave out over 8 gift cards.
