Scottish Rite Children’s Charities

RiteCare Scottish Rite Childhood Language Program was founded by the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry to help children with speech and language disorders. There are over 170 RiteCare programs throughout the United States providing care and teaching young children with speech and language disorders the communication skills necessary to succeed in school and throughout their lives.

There are several professional Scottish Rite RiteCare affiliated programs in Missouri that all provide free and accessible services to children: Walker Scottish Rite Clinic at Maryville University (St. Louis), Robert G. Combs Childhood Language PreSchool at University of MO (Columbia), Scottish Rite RiteCare Early Language Literacy Lab at University of Central Missouri, RiteCare Early Literacy Lab at Truman State University, United Cerebral Palsy of Northwest Missouri (St. Joseph), RiteCare Clinic in Kansas City and Scottish Rite RiteCare services provided in Joplin.
