Cono is a community where healing begins. It is a safe place, where the heart of the adolescent is given voice, spiritual growth takes place, where learning and maturity can flourish.
STRUGGLING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
Children from hard places—a phrase that captures experiences of trauma, neglect, or family disruption—often struggle. Difficult experiences can impair development. This leads to a need for intervention beyond the scope of individual families.
Cono gives families and their children a place of hope and reconciliation; a place to move beyond struggle and conflict. We follow Christ into the world attending to those whose lives have been disrupted, relationships dissolved, and faith development hindered; to those suffering the effects of trauma.
Former student: Four years after I stepped onto that Cono campus, I graduated with plans for the future. It did not seem like a reality to me or anyone else when I first arrived. I am thankful for Cono because it helped me grow up and learn how to live a life with God at the front and center.
