Welcome to the home of the South Bay CoDependents Anonymous Intergroup
Serving the CoDA groups of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties.
Co-Dependents Anonymous is a fellowship of people whose common purpose is to develop healthy relationships. The only requirement for membership is a desire for healthy and loving relationships.
Feelings of loneliness, isolation, and depression seem to be magnified or can easily overwhelm us at different times in our lives. Knowing we are always able to call a friend, a sponsor, or another member of the fellowship, or attend a CoDA meeting–in person, online or over the phone–can help. Two CoDA volunteer staffed toll-free telephone numbers are available. English: (888) 444-2359, and Spanish: (888) 444-2379. These are posted on the coda.org site along with more information on the program of Codependents Anonymous (CoDA).
CoDA Structure and The 7th Tradition
By tradition, CoDA is not organized in a hierarchical form, but rather is structured as an inverted pyramid. This means that all levels of the CoDA service structure are accountable to the fellowship as a whole. The top, or broadest part of the pyramid, is made up of the individual CoDA groups. The subsequent layers consist of Intergroups, Voting Entities, the CoDA Service Conference, and the CoDA and CoRE boards and committees. For more information on the service structure of CoDA check out the Fellowship Service Manual (FSM) here.
Our 7th Tradition states:
Every CoDA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, when groups met remotely, the practice of the 7th Tradition slowed to a trickle. Funding of CoDA at all levels comes primarily from individual contributions at meetings, which are then distributed throughout the CoDA service structure to the Intergroup (South Bay CoDA), Voting Entity (NorCal CoDA), and CoDA World Service. These funds are used to provide local one-day conferences at the intergroup level, to send delegates from Northern California to the annual CoDA Service Conference (CSC) where the business of CoDA gets done, and to provide support to all members of our fellowship.
