Heroes didn’t leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched hand; they didn’t wear boots and capes. They bled, and they bruised, and their superpowers were as simple as listening, or loving. Heroes were ordinary people who knew that even if their own lives were impossibly knotted, they could untangle someone else’s. And maybe that one act could lead someone to rescue you right back.

         – Jodi Picoult

If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.

         –  John Donne

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

         –  Paulo Coelho

Do. Or do not. There is no try.

CoreCares is the public service arm of Core Investments, with a purpose to serve our community.

About CoreCares

CoreCares is the tangible expression of our values-driven approach to real estate, summarized by the phrase: It’s a community, not a commodity™.

We define our community as our employees, partners, tenants, and the neighborhoods where we work and own property. This means that we have a particular focus on building up our community in South Boston, the neighborhoods around On the Dot®, or wherever our next project might be.

Our events are organized by our property management team, Presence by Cushman & Wakefield, and our dedicated Experience Program Manager, Katey Yang.

Areas of Focus

Renewing our Neighborhoods
As real estate developers, we naturally look to renew and transform the environment around us, so we start by picking up trash, connecting the community, and improving safety.
Serving the Most Vulnerable
There are many in our neighborhood who are in need, lacking shelter, or experiencing poverty. We partner with organizations that are mobilized to serve those most in need.
Developing Opportunity
Our community has incredible potential—we aim to inspire students, create local jobs in the neighborhood, provide training, and equip workers to help them achieve more.
Caring for our Team
We seek to create a great work environment and culture, which means we take care of one-another, provide outstanding benefits, and encourage employees to give back.

Land Donations

At Core, we are passionate about land – whether it is adding energy to an underutilized space or appreciating the history that took place there. As a CoreCares initiative, Core has donated over 23 acres of land across Massachusetts to important organizations such as the Conservation Commission for the Town of Westminster, Massachusetts Historical Commission, Orenda Wildlife Land Trust, Inc. and Barnstable Land Trust, Inc. Take a look at some of the latest projects we’ve helped.
