The CORSE Foundation (Community of Resources for Special Education) was established by a group of dedicated parents and educators to raise funds to provide high quality and affordable programming, training and resources that will benefit children with special needs (ages 3-22), their families and educators throughout South Shore Massachusetts.  CORSE has designed an innovative model within a blended framework of integrated and specialized social, academic, recreation, therapeutic and work-skills development programs so children with special needs can reach their full potential.  Our variety of programs are staffed appropriately through customized staffing ratios and special education expertise so ALL children, those with and without special needs, can successfully participate together within their community. 

To Make a Donation:

To keep our programs as affordable as possible, CORSE supplements 75% of all our programming costs and is run entirely by unpaid volunteers.  Our administrative overhead is only 4.9%. In order to continue our beneficial programs, please consider a donation to CORSE. ALL donations are greatly appreciated!    For more information, please click here.
