Thank you to the Charlson Foundation for your 2021 grant award in support of Cornerstone’s Prevention, Education and Clinical Services (PECS) Program. These services are critical to our mission and we sincerely appreciate your continued partnership.
One component of the PECS Program is School-Based Services. Thank you to both The Frank Hadley and Cornelia Root Ginn Foundation of the Cleveland Foundation and the Eden Prairie AM Rotary Foundation for your recent grants to support violence prevention and early intervention services for middle and high school students that are provided by our creative and passionate School-based Services staff. Cornerstone also extends its sincere thanks to the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation for its 2021 support of our mission-driven School-Based Services Program. Over the past year this prevention and early intervention program has continued to reach classrooms and students in new ways – engaging in critical conversations around equity and connecting with young people experiencing increased isolation and trauma. We are grateful to the foundation for its continued recognition of this important work in our community.
Another PECS component includes Clinical Services. We are grateful for the support of The Mike and Linda Fiterman Family Foundation to help ensure our ability to provide critical mental health therapy. Thanks to Alerus for your recent grant donation to support Financial Literacy classes that are part of Cornerstone’s Community and Economic Empowerment Services Program.
