welcome to coa

Founded in 1981, Christian Outreach in Action was established by one man's passion for service.

Jack Jensen's original mission was to feed all the hungry and needy in his community. Today our services far extend Jack's original vision. We provide extensive services from hot meals to legal advice for all those in need in Long Beach and the greater Los Angeles area.

Christian Outreach in Action is a nondenominational 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of homeless and impoverished individuals in Long Beach so they may reach and sustain self-sufficiency and independence.
