The COPE website shares their mission below:
The Tallahassee COPE Coalition consists of a diverse group of public and private sector agencies, organizations, institutions, and individuals with years of expertise in addressing risk factors that impact childhood health and wellness. Key strengths of the coalition are:
- the tremendous wealth of existing work and research conducted by coalition community leaders and champions
- dedicated support of state representatives, and city and county officials in addressing childhood obesity in our capital city; and
- engagement of the authentic voices of Tallahassee residents in developing strategies for increasing the health of our most valuable stakeholder-our children.
