Helping A Friend Affected By The Louisiana Floods


Provident Resources Group is a Baton Rouge, LA, based nonprofit foundation that partners with universities to deliver on-campus student housing communities.  COCM has the privilege of managing Provident communities at Montclair State University, Towson University, the University of Florida, Western University of Health Sciences, and Marshall University.  The recent Baton Rouge floods took virtually everything from several Provident employees, with no resources from flood or homeowner’s insurance to rebuild.  In a strong example of their care and support, Provident created an employee relief fund for these people with a $100,000 fundraising goal.  When the employees of COCM learned of this worthy cause, we engaged in a company-wide initiative to support our friends at Provident by spreading the message through the attached video, and instituting a dollar-for-dollar company match of all money donated by our employees.  It’s an honor to help and lift up our friends at Provident and we are truly appreciative of the support of everyone with COCM!

We are posting this video because we thought some of our Student Housing Matters followers may also be interested in helping the Provident employees.
