It seems that no matter howchallenging the times, there willalways be those whodare to dream. In 2003, I had avision for making college moreaccessible for our young peoplein the city of Philadelphia. Thatvision was realized through thePhiladelphia CollegeOpportunity Resources forEducation nonprofitorganization, affectionatelyknown throughout the city as"CORE Philly." To this day, CORE remains aplace where every graduatinghigh school student - no matterhow tough the neighborhoodthey come from or what theirhigh school grades were - canreceive a college scholarshipalong with an opportunity to getone step closer to realizing theirown dreams. Here we areseven years later, and I couldnot be more proud.CORE has provided collegeaccess "final mile" scholarshipsof about $27 million to nearly17,000 students. Without adoubt, CORE has made atremendous impact on thefabric of the city and in the livesof those who need it most.With more than 60% of COREawards granted to first-generation college students,and 85% of them beinggraduates of the PhiladelphiaPublic School District, one canimagine how proud we are tobe able to share our successeswith the national college accesscommunity today.Without “creaming from thetop,” CORE has succeededwhere many have feared totread. Our graduation rates forstudents from the mostchallenging zip codes withregard to crime, dropout rates,and income level speak volumes about these kids. Along with the remarkable featsour students haveaccomplished, CORE hasetched in stone a notable track record of success.I invite you to take a moment toconnect with CORE, applaud itsstudents and support itsmission for today and ultimatelyits vision for tomorrow.By expanding and expoundingthis cultural model of success –reaching their goals andrealizing their dreams will onlybecome more tangible for ouryoung people.Because after all, despite life'schallenges, given a little push inthe right direction with somefinancial, academic and socialsupport, we can propel ouryouth to not only obtain acollege degree but to buildmeaningful futures with fewerlimitations and a myriad of possibilities.Congressman Chaka Fattah,Founder
