Message from the Executive Director

Welcome to Cornerstone’s website.  As an organization committed to excellence in service we want to share with you our key strategic directions for the years 2014/2015 through 2016/2017. 

  1. Enhance Service Outcomes Through Collaborative Approaches

    With a continued commitment to working collaboratively, we will provide effective, evidence-based and accountable services that meet the diverse needs of our clients and the community. Our key focus is: “Excellence in Service.” Our program development model will continue to be grounded in proactively responding to the needs of the community.

  2. Expand Family Violence Prevention Initiatives 

    Building on Cornerstone’s family violence prevention work, we will create an integrated framework, clearly outlining our continuum of services. This will better focus our prevention work, support program planning, and strengthen our impact on the community.

  3. Develop a strategic and influential voice and presence on the issue of family violence

    Building on the success of the launch of our new name, Cornerstone will develop and implement a focused and targeted communications and marketing plan. We will broaden and strengthen our connections and points of influence with others working with victims of family violence. This will strengthen a broader systems response to family violence.

  4. Continue to Develop a Responsive and Resilient Organization

    Cornerstone will build our financial strength and resilience by enhancing fundraising and grant seeking activities.  Cornerstone will focus its efforts on targeted fundraising events, corporate partnerships and sponsorships, individual giving and planned giving.   This will include engaging volunteers, Board members and community members in this vital resource development work.

Cornerstone is Accredited!
