Per the Governor’s request to shut down nonessential services, CORA’s early childhood programs and Fox Chase facility 
will be closed until further notice. 
THE MAJORITY OF OUR SERVICES ARE CONTINUING REMOTELY.    
At CORA, serving children and families is always essential.
Our staff is working remotely to continue to support you in every way we can during this time. 
We would love to hear from you!
