Our vision is that every student in Atlanta, no matter their socioeconomic background, has the support and tools needed to overcome structural disadvantages and flourish at school and beyond.

COR offers programming to trauma-impacted students who are marginalized by poverty and race-based educational inequities. Trauma includes homelessness, child maltreatment, domestic violence, and sexual assault or exploitation, and it can impact our youth in many ways, including socially, psychologically, academically, socioeconomically, and physically.

Our approach is unique because our team is located on-site, in the school. This allows us to develop meaningful relationships which are integral to addressing and moving through trauma, creating protective factors, and enhancing student success.
