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, their parents and educators throughout South Shore Massachusetts.  CORSE has designed an innovative model within a blended framework of integrated and specialized social, educational and recreational 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.  For more information, please visit our website at

For 2022, these programs have been generously supported by grant funding received from the Harold Brooks Trust, Evan Henry Foundation, South Shore Playhouse Associates as well as our community fundraising supporters.
