This year’s Butterfly Effect has been cancelled due to COVID-19 and the butterflies not being available.

This event is so important to our community and COHA, and we know that next year’s Butterfly Effect will be even more special to come together as a community, connect and remember our loved ones in a symbolic way. Each and every one of you are in our thoughts this year and sending you much strength and energy to get through this pandemic.


Funds raised at the Butterfly Effect have been designated to our grief and bereavement program over the years. This includes counseling, grief groups, walking groups, and our Celebration of Life. This year, we ask that you make a donation to our Compassion in Crisis campaign. You can designate your gift to the Grief Support pillar and know that your gift will help community members receive the support they need at their most vulnerable time. You can continue to make a difference.

Stay well, healthy and safe.
