We are continuously monitoring and responding to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation.

At this time Meaningful Community Services (CORE Foundations and Project SEARCH) are offering daily virtual support services to our community. All community-based programming has been suspended at this time to follow CDC guidelines and recommendations from national, state and local health departments, to minimize risk for our Meaningful Community Services community members.
