The Community Organization Resource Exchange (C.O.R.E.) originated over 20 years ago by local nonprofits in the Rochester Community. The group met each month to discuss event calendars to avoid the duplication of efforts and scheduling conflicts. Over the years, C.O.R.E. membership has grown, and its meetings have evolved to include a monthly guest speaker who addresses pertinent subject matter for its members. It is the goal of C.O.R.E. to create a strong nonprofit and service organization network in the Rochester Community and to work together for the betterment of the families we serve. All nonprofits and service groups who serve the Rochester Community are encouraged to attend.
