Mission Statement

Founded in 1994, CORE's mission is to represent, advocate, and strengthen residential education programs for children and youth whose homes cannot meet their needs.

CORE passionately believes high-quality residential education should be added to the scarce options currently available to these children, their families, and our communities.

CORE supports the development of high-quality residential education programs through:

Advocacy

Professional Practices

Public Awareness

Capacity-Building through Collaboration

Information and Resources


Residential education is an umbrella term for community-like
settings where at-risk children live and learn together, outside their
homes, within stable, supportive environments. Whether called a prep
school, children’s home, boarding or residential charter school,
residential education is a viable and important option for thousands of
children, particularly teenagers. Residential education serves children
severely challenged by homelessness, abuse, neglect, and low-income,
high-crime neighborhoods.

Residential education is one of a number of solutions for at-risk
children. Long recognized as a desirable model for children from more
affluent families, residential education affords at-risk children a
similar opportunity - helping them navigate a solid course in career,
relationships…and in life.

Principal Officer

Ms. Heidi Goldsmith

BIO

Heidi Goldsmith is founder and executive director of CORE. Ms. Goldsmith has 30 years of experience in the U.S. and overseas as a community organizer and administrator of social and educational services for disadvantaged populations.

Cringing at the statistics of rising numbers of youth needing foster homes, and the concurrent decline in the number of foster homes, she founded CORE, envisioning a national network of residential schools for these and other disadvantaged youth. Her vision is based on Israel's successful network of residential schools for disadvantaged youth.

A graduate of Brandeis University's Heller Graduate School in Social Policy and Management, Ms. Goldsmith has provided extensive technical assistance to initiate new residential schools in numerous states, advised many existing residential schools, and introduced the nation to the term "residential education." She regularly works with state and federal policymakers to explain the nature of and the need for residential schools.

Since 1994, she has organized public awareness initiatives, including travel seminars to visit existing programs, press conferences, and presentations at various forums. Ms. Goldsmith is frequently interviewed by print, radio, and television media, and has authored numerous publications on the residential education option for youth.
