  2. 2.  Founded in 1994, the Coalition of Residential Excellence (CORE) is an organization dedicated to improving residential care and public support for children in need, especially in high-risk communities. Its functions are many and include providing financial support and awards for deserving school districts and administrators, such as current Milton Hershey School President Pete Gurt '85 in 2009. Milton Hershey School has received several awards from the Coalition of Residential Excellence several times for the work of their students and administrators. The organization is inspired by the possibility of school and community support coming from both government and private funds. CORE originally focused on revamping public policy to support residential education, and now functions as a reformative force for economically and socially disadvantaged children.
  3. 3.  Today, the Coalition of Residential Excellence is made up of more than 30 organizations and continues to advocate for young unsupported students. Traditionally supported programs in CORE include charter schools, youth ranches, children’s homes, and other similar residential education opportunities that may provide an appropriate environment for students needing a supportive environment.
