Financial contributions of any amount have a significant impact in the lives of the children, young adults and families in our care. Your generosity allows us to provide the support they need to succeed while providing our wide array of therapeutic services. Together we can provide safety and health to 7,000 children and families, plus an additional 4,000 community members.

How Your Gift Makes a Difference

  • Helps to provide therapeutic and education services for a child to return into their school with the skills and resources they need to succeed.
  • Creates a sense of joy by providing a gift to a child on their first birthday away from home.
  • Assists with a month’s rent and utilities for an apartment that serves as a safe home for a young adult on their own for the first time.
  • Contributes to prevention services that can help to break the cycle of trauma and create stronger families and communities.

How to Make a Financial Contribution

You are welcome to donate online, over the phone, or via mail. If you choose to mail your gift, please include all of your contact information and any special instructions for your donation. Cash gifts provide maximum flexibility for addressing the treatment and care of our youth and for necessary operating funds, but donations may also be designated for specific programs. If you would like to support a specific project, simply include those details along with your contribution. All mailed checks should be made out to "Cornerstones of Care" and sent to the following address:

Honoring or Remembering Loved Ones

Memorial gifts are made in memory of a departed loved one and acknowledged to the family of the deceased. Honor gifts are made in honor of a friend, work associate, or loved one to celebrate a special occasion or just to let them know they’re important. All tribute gifts benefit the Cornerstones of Care Foundation and are listed within the next issue of our newsletter that is published several times per year.
