Our Mission & History

The Coalition began in 1998 when a local business leader and concerned citizens realized a need to help underprivileged children and youth make better choices on their path to becoming responsible adults.

Funding was contributed to purchase a 9,700 square foot community center called “The Rock”.

After a complete renovation, the Grand Opening was held February 27, 1999 (with over 500 in attendance) marking the beginning of the objective to make the lives of children a reality. After ten years the Coalition For Kids had changed the lives of thousands of low income children and The Rock Community Center had become a vibrant hub at the center of C4K’s programs.

In 2015, Coalition For Kids was given the keys to the old Tri-Cities Christian Elementary School: a 33,000 sq ft facility, renovated, including administrative offices, multiple classrooms, a large gymnasium, and a recently-built KaBOOM! playground.
