Mission Statement
Our mission is to raise awareness of Spina Bifida and to make a difference in the lives of all who are touched by Spina Bifida in the Central Ohio area.

COSBA is a 501c3 non-profit which was resurrected in 2001 by parents caring for children with Spina Bifida. Since that time we have offered our support to new families, organized social gatherings and helped with Spina Bifida related financial needs. We meet bi-monthly and are always looking for ways to improve!
