C.O.P.E. (Cooperative Outreach for Personal Emergencies) was inspired by the
Community Service Committee of Central Christian Church. In 1983, CCC along
with 12 other local churches organized and founded Robertson County's first
store-front ministry. C.O.P.E. provides emergency funding for rent and
utilities as well as very low-cost clothing for needy families in Robertson
County. COPE INC. location is 810 South Main St. Springfield, TN. 37172 Phone
CCC sponsors C.O.P.E. volunteers who work the desk, sort and display clothing,
and conduct client interviews. CCC is also represented on the Board of C.O.P.E.
by volunteers who devote time to the organizational work at C.O.P.E.
The volunteer spirit at Central Christian Church is alive and making a
difference in Springfield, Tennessee.
