CORSE was established 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. Through fundraising activities, the Foundation is able to allocate funds for a wide range of supplemental resources that will benefit children, parents and educators within our community. The Foundation cannot fund basic staffing and services required by state and federal education laws. However, with alternative funding, enhanced programming such as after-school programs, recreational activities, technology and training can have a profound impact on those whose needs are greatest.
