Educating Our Community
We believe that education is critical to the empowerment of individuals and the community, and strive to minimize the educational gap that affects minorities and low-income individuals. That is why we are committed to educating throughout different initiatives and projects.
Combating Educational Inequality
Different social and economic factors that are completely out of the control of the individuals can affect their education level. That is why MCOHA is actively working on the front lines in the community to give individuals access to critical opportunities and resources that can help them achieve their academic goals.
Providing Assistance with School and Higher Education
Clients who are interested in improving their academic levels, and or pursuing higher education, can count on MCOHA to help them achieve their goals. We provide after-school tutoring to children and assistance in applying to higher education programs and institutions through our Justice For All program, which aims to help children and families become connected with the community resources that address their needs. Furthermore, we provide low-cost citizenship classes that prepare the students with the tools they need to succeed.
Keeping them Up To Date With Relevant Information
Keeping the Morris County community informed constitutes a growing part of the work we do. We partner with local organizations and authorities to create informational forums open to all. Furthermore, we bring the ever-changing relevant information directly to our clients through our direct services and keep them readily available in our offices.
