About Us

Council on Child Abuse of Southern Ohio, Inc. (COCA)


Since 1978, COCA has always been committed to and focused on the prevention of child abuse. We have had a tradition and reputation for providing effective programs to over 600,000 children and adults focusing on primary services that prevent harm to children.

Thanks to the individual and collective efforts of our professional staff and volunteer leadership, the agency continues to strengthen and refine its programs and services to effectively meet current and emerging community needs. We are proud of the impact of our services on the children, parents and professionals we served each year.

Focusing its efforts on strategic planning to guarantee the sustainability of COCA’s programs for the community, COCA's Board of Trustees made the decision to become an affiliate of Talbert House in October 2015. The agency's name and programs remain the same, and we look forward to the many new and expanded opportunities this affiliation will provide.
