Cornerstone possess a strong youth and family-centered philosophy. Our commitment to ending domestic abuse, sexual abuse, and human trafficking is demonstrated by the comprehensive programming we deliver to children, youth, and families.
We understand that domestic abuse, sexual abuse, and human trafficking profoundly affects youth. We are committed to the safety, well-being of families and youth, and supporting them to end the generational cycle of abuse.
It is our goal to work towards ending this cycle by reaching out to youth early in the learning process to teach healthy relationship skills. We also want to assure that parents know the important role they play in helping their children heal. If children receive appropriate professional services early on, the potential for positive behavioral change is significantly increased.
