    Sounds of the Season
    Our annual Sounds of the Season is a Christmas concert where each individual who wants has a part. They perform in front of an audience at Genetti's with a dinner to follow.
Cori’s Place is an adult training facility where adults with disabilities develop and maintain their skills. 
We focus on developing the individuals’ adult daily living skills like cooking, cleaning, and money management. In addition we promote positive and appropriate social skills and emotional growth.  We use the community and volunteer opportunities as teaching tools, so the individuals can experience real life situations and become contributing members of their communities.  Take a look below at what the program incorporates.

Volunteering

A major part of the Cori's Place program is volunteering.  Our individuals spend most of their lives being helped, but Cori's Place gives them the opportunity to help others. Take a look below at some of the organizations we are associated with.

Sounds of the Season Fundraiser
Also every year we use our Sounds of the Season Concert to raise money for another worthy non-profit. We use the large turnout of about 475 people to benefit a local organization such as the Family Service Association, Lands at Hillside Farms, Luzerne County SPCA, Weinberg Food Bank, Leadership Wilkes-Barre, The Domestic Violence Center, and Back Mountain Food Pantry.  Everyone who attends the concert either donates a needed item or makes a monetary donation to the chosen charitable organization.
