Hope After Suicide Loss
When a person has lost a loved one to suicide, their grief can be complicated. Cornerstone is offering a group specifically for these survivors. General bereavement issues will be touched on, but particular attention will be given to the specific needs and stigmas that arise due to loss from suicide.

Hope After Overdose Loss
This unique loss can leave families with many unanswered questions along with a myriad of difficult emotions. This group hopes to bring people together who have experienced similar losses, offer some education about the addiction process, offer support for the numerous emotional reactions that accompany this particular loss, and provides some helpful insight for moving forward with hope.

Volunteers Needed

We are actively recruiting volunteers. If you or someone you know is in a place in their journey where you are ready to serve and help, let’s talk.

Our volunteers serve in many capacities, and training and ongoing support are built into the framework of our volunteer network. After completing an application and background check, volunteers attend a day of training to introduce them to the unique mission of this team and to equip them with the skills needed for success.  Our next volunteer training session is listed below.

Interested in volunteering, or know someone who may be interested? Please call 1-833-634-4673 (HOPE) or fill out the Interest Form below.


If you are grieving the loss of a loved one and are in need of support, we are here to serve.
