Covia: What’s in a Name?

Covia (pronounced co-VEE-a) is not a word that you will find in any dictionary. It’s not an acronym, but it still stands for something. Covia is a name that emerged from deep consideration about who we are and what we stand for as an organization.

The “co” of Covia comes from our belief in the importance of community, of connection, of companionship, of compassion. The “via” comes from two sources: both “via” – the path, and “vita” the Latin word for life.

At Covia, we come together on the path of life. We hope you’ll join us on the journey.
