Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The California Scottish Rite Foundation has three programs to meet three needs. The first is our RiteCare® program, which provides no-cost speech, language, and literacy intervention services for the under-served and un-served children of California. There is a documented shortage of Speech-Language Pathologists in the California schools, coupled with an increasing need for their services. We have 14 RiteCare® locations in communities throughout California, where parents can self-refer to our centers. Children meeting the age and eligibility criteria for their local center can obtain high quality, no-cost, evaluations as well as speech, language, and literacy intervention services for up to two years.

The second is our Student Aid Program. Scholarships are awarded to undergraduate and graduate students to help defer the rising costs of higher education. The California Scottish Rite Foundation supports professional education and training in the prevention and treatment of childhood

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The California Scottish Rite Foundation's mission is to support and assist the children in California to develop their full potential by providing childhood language services, scholarships and other charitable programs. We support student and professional education and training in prevention and treatment of childhood language disorders.

The RiteCare® program has already made an impact over time. We serve approximately 550 children each month, with over 36,000 hours a year of therapy services and professional evaluation. The annual cost for these program services is over $3,200,000.00, and these are provided on a “no fee for service". Since 1958, the total support for our RiteCare® services has exceeded $62,000,000.00.

Meeting our goals for RiteCare® requires partnering with local speech, language, and literacy specialists as well as Universities across California to provide services at our 14 locations. We work with other community agencies such as schools, Regional Centers, pediatricians, and other referring professionals to direct children to our service locations. We also partner with RiteCare® in other states as well as with the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, which offers national level support to our efforts.

The California Scottish Rite Foundation is well positioned to provide no-cost speech, language and literacy services to the children of California. We have the infrastructure, professional partnerships, and donors support to continue our mission well into the future.

The California RiteCare® program has provided speech, language and literacy services to thousands of children since 1970, when our first center opened in San Francisco. In the future, we plan to expand our program offerings to reach more children. We know there is an on-going and even growing need for the services we offer.
