Cornerstones of Care is dedicated to partnering for safe and healthy communities by leveraging decades of expertise and a certification in trauma-informed care to provide an array of quality prevention, treatment and support services to children and families. We strive to affect positive change, give a stronger voice to those in need, raise awareness in our communities and deliver a fully integrated approach to care.


Statement by Cornerstones of Care President and CEO Denise Cross to Kansas City Star

The Kansas City Star’s recent six-part series on the foster care system is a deep look into families in crisis resulting in childhood trauma. Every day, our dedicated team is recognizing, understanding and responding to the impact of trauma and working to create safer and healthier futures for children and families like DoreenGabriella and Justin. Recent federal support through the Family First Prevention Services Act is funding the expansion of our functional family therapy program, a well-documented in-home service specifically designed to keep youth safely with their families and out of the juvenile justice system. In addition, we’ve partnered with the Kansas Department of Children and Families to keep children safe and families together through trauma-informed family preservation interventions.

It’s services like Pathways Transitional LivingBuild TrybeYouth Educational Success and Homeroom Health that are providing support and guidance to older youth in foster care across the region. But, we can’t do it alone. It takes national, state and local leaders, private corporations and individuals all working together to transform outcomes for thousands of children and families in our community. Will you join our mission right now?
