Communities Organized for Public Service (C.O.P.S.) and the Metro Alliance are a coalition of congregations, schools, and unions coming together so that we can effectively act on behalf of families. C.O.P.S. and the Metro Alliance work within each of these institutions to identify a diverse, broad-based leadership that can connect to each other in new ways in order to act effectively on behalf of children, families, and neighborhoods. By learning to work together for the public good, C.O.P.S. and Metro Alliance leaders are able to work with the business community and elected officials to make San Antonio a better place for families.

As important as the issues that C.O.P.S. and Metro Alliance address are, the relationships that leaders develop and foster within their institutions and among leaders from the racially, ethnically, and religiously diverse institutions that comprise these organizations are the foundation of broad-based community organizing.

    Did you know that 1 out of 5 people in San Antonio lives in poverty?

    Even worse, 1 in 3 children is growing up in poverty in San Antonio. Many families are working very hard and still not earning enough to make ends meet. In response, leaders from C.O.P.S. and the Metro Alliance have launched a campaign to raise wages for many of the lowest paid workers in San Antonio.
