Our Work

 

At COGUM Global, our work is centered around improving the lives of the individuals and families we serve. Affordable housing is a huge part of our ministry, but we don’t stop there. We strive to care for the total person, giving each one we serve the chance to fulfill his or her potential.

Our Affordable Housing

Our Affordable Housing

COGUM Global Homes

It all starts with our affordable housing. COGUM Global works to provide suitable, adequate housing at below-market-rate costs. We believe that all people have the right to live in a decent home. Together with our partners and donors, we’ve put over 65 families in homes they can be proud of.

COGUM Global Child Reading

Our literacy efforts include a partnership with the York County Library. Their bookmobile, a library on wheels, comes to one community every other Thursday. Children have the opportunity to read and check out books.

A Healthy Body

A Healthy Body

COGUM Global believes that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Therefore, we educate our community members on strengthening and maintaining healthy bodies. We focus on preventing and/or reversing certain diseases. We use the latest research in health and wellness to guide others. Our goal is to help those we serve understand the relationship between proper nutrition, adequate exercise, and optimal health.

We want each person to take ownership of healthy lifestyle choices so their bodies can reach their highest potential. We use sound teaching techniques and highly engaging, health-centered programs and activities. These include community outreach, distributing flyers, and raising awareness of health screenings. We serve all age groups. Children, youth, adolescents, young adults, adults, and seniors alike will learn about practical ways to address the needs of the body.

Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and other maladies are more common among lower income families. This is due in part to a lack of access to proper healthcare. However, these diseases can affect anyone, regardless of socioeconomic background. We hope that every member of our communities will fully embrace disease prevention through nutrition and exercise. This will allow their bodies to be healthy vehicles that carry them to future accomplishments.
