The Cornerstone Volunteer Program is made up of an incredible group of dedicated and caring people who freely give of their time to enrich the lives of those in their community. At Cornerstone, we strive to involve volunteers as partners. Our volunteers, staff, and the residents complement each other, learn from each other, exchange, create and help each other. It is through this spirit of collaboration and support that each individual's unique gifts and talents are shared and developed, thus enriching everyone's lives. Volunteers provide a critical link to the community served by Cornerstone. They bring a fresh perspective to the organization and add to our human resources pool of knowledge and skills.
