Contributions are always welcome…
and needed.

Since government funding does not cover all of the cost of services and programs, Shore must maintain a strong private funding base in order to continue delivering high-quality support to the children and adults with intellectual and other developmental disabilities. All contributions are welcome. You can also make a contribution as a memorial or honorarium. Please make checks payable to Shore Community Services. We also accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover Card.

Please remember Shore in your estate planning, will, or set up a variety of trust funds to benefit Shore, yourself or a loved one.
