Campus-Based Living

The children, youth and young adults on the Cornerstones of Care – Ozanam campus receive trauma-responsive support to improve safety, behavior and independence. Everyone served on our campus comes to us with many strengths and talents – but also with histories of abuse, neglect, domestic and community violence and/or psychiatric hospitalizations. These experiences can cause attachment difficulties, cognitive impairments, and emotional and behavioral challenges that can lead to unsafe behavior in families, schools and communities. Each program provides the structure and support needed to improve safety and begin healing.
