What People Are Saying

"When I needed someone to talk to, there was a counselor at Cornerstone, every single time. When I was in crisis , they were there. They helped me with safety planning and helped me on my journey of healing and gaining ownership of my life again. "

"Because of the Learning Disabilities Association’s After School Tutoring program, I can now read at my grade level and I am doing well in all of my subjects at school. I feel better about myself and my learning abilities.” "
