This charity has helped me and family tremendously. I don’t know where I would if it wasn’t for COLA.
When I volunteer with this organization. I seen complete compassion towards everyone. Everybody was always friendly and very helpful. This organization has 1 goal and that's to help anybody in need. I've seen first hand on how amazing this organization is. They have help so many different people from different walks of life. I'm happy I was able to be apart of something great.
Always doing great things in the community! If you are a volunteer looking for new opportunities, I highly recommend this organization!
Awesome organization! I have volunteered for almost 10 years and I am always in awe of all the resources they provide to the community. Great staff as well!
Circle of Light Associates Non-Profit Organization continues to provide many programs to the under-served in the community. I work with the COLA STEM Initiative which is a program that utilizes FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and LEGOs to teach children ages 4 - 14 science, technology, engineering, and math skills, as well as social skills. This program reaches children and makes a permanent difference in their lives. The volunteers are wonderful to work with and truly have a heart to help someone in need. I appreciate all COLA has accomplished with volunteers and the work they have done in the community.

I'm very thankful for the services provided not only in the Baden area, but surrounding communities. If the need is there and resources are available many leave thankful. The food panty is helping many families as resources in the household becomes scarce. The people associated with this organinzation are professional and willing to go out of their way to make things happen. Although obtaining resources can be challenging, the volunteers never stops helping those in need. I also know that many have been helped with the educational opportunites provided throughout the years. We need more people to reach out in our communities and provide support for those that are willing to help... It's greatly needed in these times. Vernita
Having a food pantry in the neighborhood really helps the whole community were we are able to get help in our own neighborhood instead of going to others for help it's like a 1 stop shop were you are able to get clothes and food all in 1 place place
Outstanding organization with the well-being of the community as it's main focus. We need more organizations like this!

They also give great hugs and lots of love! Walking into the doors of this church you can feel peace in the air! I appreciate them for all they have done for my family in our time of need. I would highly recommend not only this pantry, as well as their church to anyone in need of any assistance.

COLA has helped so many in need! When there is a place that you can come to for help it leaves a great impact. Food pantry, gentle clothing and all around encouragement is what the world needs everyday and it’s something that COLA provides! Will always appreciate a organization as such
C.OL.A is an excellent non-profit organization. Through its many programs (Transitional Housing Project, Grass Roots Food Pantry, Greater Achievers Learning Center, etc) it has reached out and helped thousands of families who otherwise would have been left destitute. I myself have been in need of different things and each time i reached out to C.O.L.A they rendered a helping hand. It also has given young people an opportunity to make an honest living and gain experience in several different fields. Without the support of C.O.L.A some of these same young people may have resorted to more shameful, and even illegitimate means of making ends meet. C.O.L.A will forever be a staple in the St Louis MO community, and with continued support it will reach out to other communities nationwide.
C.O.L.A. is a great non-profit organization in the city of st.Louis. It has served over 10,000 families from It's grass roots food pantry and also has provided sufficient child care through it's Greater Achiever's Learning Center. C.O.L.A is an organization that has been a continuous help to the Baden community, the St.Louis area, and has the potential to benefit the entire nation.
I have learned a great deal by volunteering with C.O.L.A.
I Love this organization has helped me out in so many ways at my lowest point in life it gave me life
My experience with COLA has been great. I have worked with several other non profits in the Saint Louis area. COLA stands out to me because it is the only SELF SUSTAINING non profit that I have worked with. Most other orgs have serveral sources of funding that come from outside vendors. They are willing to help anybody anytime anywhere.
This organization is a life saver! They have many different programs that can help in all aspects of life.
