A Special Thank You to the Following:
Emergency Services programming will greatly benefit from the recent grant support from CH Robinson Worldwide Foundation, Edina Realty Foundation and Bank of America. As our shelter has been at full capacity this entire year, thank you for helping us respond to all the varied short-term and long-term needs of those seeking safety.
Thank you to both Piper Jaffray and the St. Louis Park Community and Youth Development Fund for their 2016 grant award to support Cornerstone’s work in our community. Thank you so much for partnering with us.
The Frank Hadley Ginn and Cornelia Root Ginn Charitable Trust recently approved a grant designated for our Children, Youth and Families Program. We appreciate their continued support and recognition of the importance of serving children and youth exposed to violence.
Thank you to the Bloomington Crime Prevention Association for its grant award designated to support Cornerstone’s Early Childhood Program. Critical services are designed to mitigate the impact of violence on brain and healthy development with our youngest population, working babies and toddlers (and their parent) to address self-regulation, secure attachment and developmental milestones.
Thank you from Cornerstone for volunteering and donating in November:
