Our Cornerstone program held its 5th Annual Celebration of Accomplishments recently. Cornerstone helps young people who are in systems of care learn the life skills they need to be successful and independent as they transition to adulthood.
“Many times we’ve seen clients who join Cornerstone and are initially guarded about engaging in the services we offer,” said Melodi Litkouhi, Cornerstone Team Lead “But after a few months, they’re more comfortable being themselves, using their voice, interacting with others, and trying new things. It’s wonderful to see, and it means we’re doing what we set out to do: providing a safe space for clients to start where they’re at, receive supports, learn self-acceptance, and build their emotional, social, and independence skills so they can live their best lives.”
There are currently 46 young people enrolled in Cornerstone. Each of them earned a certificate of accomplishment, although not all were at the celebration event. Cornerstone is nationally recognized for its effectiveness.
