The Scituate CORSE Foundation (Community of Resources for Special Education), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was established in February of 2006 by a group of dedicated parents and educators to raise funds to provide the highest quality educational, social and recreational community experiences so children with special needs can reach their full potential.

Thank You for Another Fabulous CORSE Foundation Gala!
Once again, our community came out to support the Scituate CORSE Foundation (Community of Resources for Special Education) at our 9th annual Gala on October 25th. We were once again overwhelmed by our heart-warming and generous guests, the unbelievable auction items and many touching moments. We hope everyone had a wonderful evening! CORSE would like to acknowledge all those individuals and businesses that donated to and participated in the event’s success. None of this would be possible without our Gala Committee (Anne Lambert Allen, Mariah Avallone, Elaine Bleckley, Susan Campbell, Sheila Chaisson, Suzanne Erwin, Judi Johnson, Tracy Johnston, Jane McGovern, Melissa O’Brien, Jennifer O’Neill, Carolyn Timmons), Scituate Country Club, Mike Connor (our COMPASS Award winner, SCTV and Susan Dillman (Video Presentation) Penny Locke (Auctioneer) and The Gathering Band. A special thank you to our community’s kids (Abbey & Billy Johnston, Athena & Aurora Avallone, Derek Allen, Aidan & Gavin Chaisson, Edmond Nolan, Karly Erickson, Jennifer Spinale (teacher), Hannah Jordan, Cole Cadigan) whose children put on a phenomenal video presentation for Coach Mike.
President, Scituate CORSE Foundation – on behalf of our Board of Directors
