Welcome to COPE

Our Mission: To provide and connect resources in Western Douglas County for those whose needs are temporarily greater than their means.
The Christian Outreach Program of Elkhorn (COPE) is a multi-denominational non-profit organization made up of eleven Christian churches in Western Douglas County. We help families stay in their homes and keep food on the table by providing financial assistance, caring concern, educational assistance and referrals when needed most. COPE provides HOPE to our neighbors in need, regardless of religious, cultural, and ethnic beliefs.
Mandy finds help…

Typical COPE familyMandy came to COPE concerned for the welfare of her family. As a young mother in her twenties, she was in immediate need of food and financial help. Married with young children, their family was struggling as her husband went back to school with the goal of making a better salary to support his family. Mandy worked part time to help with the bills, but then she lost her job. Like many families in our community, they found themselves in a tough situation with the loss of income and no savings.

COPE provided hope for Mandy as we helped her family with food, rental & utility assistance, and some much needed care and support. Now, Mandy’s husband has graduated and received a $7/hr. pay increase. They no longer need our services, but you will often see Mandy at COPE sorting clothes or volunteering to help people complete their resumes. With the support of generous donors, this family was able to get back on their feet and stay in their home.
