COR Health Institute was created to serve young people and help them stay healthy, mentally and physically. Our purpose is prevention. Our method is holistic fitness, leadership and martial arts training. We operate in residential communities, and we target neighborhoods often challenged with the effects of common health disparities. Our solution to addressing the health disparities: teach young people how to prevent them.
We impact communities with a variety of health programs and services including on/off-site youth fitness programs, bootcamps, therapeutic martial arts programs, lectures and community health workshops. We have worked with schools, universities, the juvenile justice system, community organizations, businesses and elected officials to advocate for healthy living and provide alternative community health programs for youth in Baltimore City.
Our mission is to provide young people with the knowledge, support and motivation to improve their physical and psychological health.
What is COR?
COR Health Institute is a community health agency working with schools, businesses, community organizations, healthcare professionals and residents to train and encourage young people to live healthier lifestyles. Our objectives are to engage young children in a community setting, offer alternative preventative health services that decreases their likelihood of developing obesity or other preventable diseases and at the same time improve their psychological health. We believe primary-prevention focused solutions are the key to decreasing many of the challenges we face with our healthcare system.
We have the power to change the world around us. We are using that power to promote activities that improve psychological and physical health. We have created a space for young people, a direct pathway to educate them about anatomy, exercising, nutrition, meditation and history, and we provide students mentorship, life skills guidance, peer support, structure and employment. We improve access to healthy activities, we set the example for health leadership and we inspire young people to do the same.
COR Health Institute receives 100% of its financial support from private foundations, corporations and individuals who believe in our mission and the idea of investing in our young people.
Between 2015 and 2018 we raised over $400,000 to finance the construction of our new East Baltimore facility on Collington Ave.
Our organization is made possible by the generous contributions of our community.
