Our Journey of Transformation

What began as a small initiative in April of 1974 in a church basement, a handful of dedicated individuals sought to improve the lives of the community by forming Community Opportunity for Personal Enrichment (C.O.P.E). While our name has gone through several iterations due to acquisitions and mergers — all with the goal of expanding services and extending our reach — one thing has remained consistent: COPE. Today, we have blossomed into a comprehensive healthcare organization that serves adults, youth, and their families from all walks of life. Throughout our history, we have continuously adapted to meet the changing needs of our community, always staying true to our mission of improving the health and well-being of each person and community served.

An Integrated Approach to Wellness

We firmly believe that true wellness is a combination of body, mind, and spirit. Our integrated healthcare approach has allowed us to make a lasting impact on our members’ lives. By addressing mental health, substance misuse, and physical health conditions all within the same setting, we empower individuals to take control of their well-being and provide them with the support they need to thrive and find their way to COPE. COPE offers a comprehensive continuum of care for recovery and wellness.

Transforming Lives, One Success Story at a Time

Over the years, we have been privileged to witness countless success stories. Through our comprehensive services, we have helped individuals overcome adversity, find new hope, and unlock their own resilience. We take great pride in the transformations we have witnessed and are grateful to have played a role in the journey of so many. There are countless stories from individuals we have served over the many decades.

A Commitment to Community

We understand that a healthier community starts with empowered individuals. By focusing on the health and well-being of each person we serve, we contribute to creating a stronger, more vibrant community. We are honored to be  a part of the lives of so many and to continue making a positive impact in our community.
