Since the scope of CORSE programming serves children ages 6-22, we would like to refer interested older teens and adults to explore a valuable neighbor in our community, Friendship Home. They provide a variety of respite programs and services for people with developmental disabilities and their families including their Home Away from Home overnight respite center, Bridges to Work vocational program and social recreational programs for ages 14 and older. Please click here to view their website.

CORSE receives two awards this Fall!

CORSE was honored with two very esteemed awards within less than a month of each other!  At our 11th Annual Gala, Tracy Johnston was honored with the Annual “Mr. C” Scituate Recreation Community Spirit Award, a coveted award recognizing commitment to volunteer service and youth in our community, specifically for the development and implementation of successful recreational programming for ALL children, including those with special needs.  A few weeks later, CORSE received the honorable Community Partnership Award from the South Shore Conservatory for our ten-year collaboration to bring the arts and therapies to children with special needs.  Together, CORSE has partnered with SSC to provide music therapy to over 1,000 students, yoga to over 250 and has provided band consulting services to assure an inclusive setting for the award winning SPS middle school band.

CORSE Continues to Celebrate its 10th Year – Help us commemorate this milestone!  From $10 for 10 years, up to $5,000 Anniversary Sponsor! 

On February 14, 2006 CORSE was incorporated as a non-profit.  Thanks to all who supported us over  the past decade, CORSE has been able to provide ten years of successful programming and community integration, offering high quality programs for ALL children in the community regardless of need and allowing children with special needs to participate alongside their friends and neighbors to reach their full potential. For media coverage of our 10th anniversary, please click here.

To commemorate this very significant milestone, on February 14, 2016 CORSE kicked off its 10th anniversary celebration with the “Circle of Giving 10-Year Campaign".  Donations made during this special campaign can be earmarked to support a specific program or activity.  For just $25 you can give a child a magical ride on the North Pole Express or provide snacks at a social program.   A $100 donation can provide a bus to take a Best Buddies group on an unforgettable adventure.  For $250, you can provide financial assistance to allow a child to attend Maritime Adventures, I Can Bike, or one of our very popular summer camps.   These are just a few of the many options available.  For more information on the various contribution opportunities please click here.  Your donation will make a difference!
