Cor Update: 2017 in Review

As we look back on 2017, and scroll through pictures and videos of all the things we have been able to experience with the Cor guys, we can’t help but stop and realize all the support and love people have poured into Cor and our students throughout the year. Since our last update in the Spring of 2017, so much has happened. We have walked through hard situations with kids, cheered them on during athletic competitions and academic achievements, and have watched them grow into a family of boys that support and encourage each other like brothers. We know that none of this would be possible without people like you, and for that we are incredibly thankful. Enjoy a glimpse of what life has been like at Cor for the last 6 months, and thank you again for all of the food, tutoring, encouraging talks, financial support, and love you have poured into Cor this year! – Travis, Angie and Jared
