Seamstress(es) or Tailors wanted! to sew fancy, sparkly, new aprons for our holiday fundraiser, The CEO Champagne Luncheon. Help finding just the right pattern would also be appreciated. Material will be provided. 40 adjustable size aprons are needed, so this may be a good group project!

Cornerstone Friends and Family Group

Do have you have a son or daughter–or a brother or sister–who receives services at Cornerstone? Would you like to learn more about the agency and various resources available? Perhaps you have questions about state and federal benefits, or better ways to ensure your loved one has financial security in the years to come.

The Parents and Family Group is an opportunity for family members and guardians to engage with the agency, learn about important issues and events, and socialize with other families.
