About Cornerstones for Kids

The mission of Cornerstones for Kids (C4K) is to improve the lives and circumstances of vulnerable children. C4K’s work focuses on improving the organizations that provide vulnerable children with supports and services in order to improve outcomes for these children and their families.

C4K is a not for profit organization formed in 2004 to house and manage the Human Services Workforce Initiative (HSWI). The premise of HSWI is that human services can positively impact the lives of vulnerable children and families, but that we cannot produce better outcomes for these individuals without addressing the workforce charged with helping them. In partnership with key national and state organizations in the fields of child welfare, juvenile justice, child care, youth development and employment service, C4K is identifying the challenges facing this workforce, highlighting best practices, and working towards policy solutions. HSWI is funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Cornerstones for Kids is associated with the Cornerstone Consulting Group. Founded in 1994, Cornerstone focuses on health and human services solutions, organizational development and community revitalization, partnering with a broad range of public and private organizations to develop solutions. Cornerstone’s principals and staff have extensive experience in direct service provision and administration, development and implementation of best practices, and crafting and analysis of policy.
