Happy 50th Birthday CORA!



Since 1971, CORA Services has been helping children and families in and around the Philadelphia region. Today our staff impact the lives of more than 20,000 children, youth and families every year, guided by the tagline…


“Children are the Heart of the Matter”


October marks 50 years of service from CORA! 

This calls for a special birthday page dedicated to CORA!




In January of 2021, we began celebrating CORA’s 50 years of service. On October 9th, 2021, we threw ourselves an actual birthday party, and we didn’t hold back! From live entertainment and performances, to fun games and delicious food trucks, CORA Fest 2021 was a perfect way to celebrate 50 years and invite the community that helps us grow! We hope you were able to join us on that fun-filled day!




Throughout the course of our 50th anniversary celebrations this year, we have been asking if you could share some of your very own special stories that involve CORA!  We are logging them on this page as they come in! Thank you to all who have submitted thus far!

Have a story to share? We want to hear it!
