In the month of January 2012, five women who were volunteering for a center for pregnant teens, decided to address the situation at an earlier stage. While sharing their disappointment in the types of services available to the young ladies before they become pregnant, they decided to form a center to address those issues. 

First, they would choose a name for the center that would encompass their mission. They decided on Collaboration of Organized Resources  Engaged (CORE). (Aka) The CORE Resource Center. Their mission was first centered around young ladies from the ages of 9 to 24 years of age, to locate and engage quality services that would enable these young ladies to be successful in life. 

They realized that in their community, it was more than the teens being neglected in service availability. Seniors and other members of the community needed services as well, so they began to join with other providers in the central Ohio area to bring  solutions for those in need.

These ladies continue to search for other quality service providers who will offer positive programs and services that work to restore a sense of value and support for our seniors, youth, homeless and all other members of our community.

Collaboration of Organized Resources Engaged  (CORE) was incorporated on February 29, 2012 and recognized as having a tax exempt status under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
