Cornerstone of Hope

Cornerstone of Hope is dedicated to providing support, education, and hope for the grieving. After walking through the grief associated with the devastating death of their three-year-old son, Mark and Christi Tripodi opened Cornerstone in 2003. Cornerstone of Hope offers a wide variety of services and programs including individual grief counseling, support groups, bereavement camps, memorial ceremonies, and education and training – all centered on offering HOPE to those who grieve.

Breakfast at 7:30am-9:30am OR Lunch at 11am-1pm

Where: 5905 Brecksville Road, Independence, OH 44131

What: Cornerstone of Hope offers a week-long, free day camp every June to children ages 6-12 who have experienced the death of someone close to them. Campers participate in age-appropriate activities led by trained professionals and also have the opportunity to play high-energy games, go on field trips, and experience challenging activities. Best of all, they learn they are not alone in their grief experiences.
Cornerstone is looking for small groups of 2-4 volunteers willing to come in during their camp to prepare, serve, and clean up from breakfast or lunch for them: just ONE meal on ONE day. Menus, ingredients, kitchen, and kids provided – no planning on your part, just come and serve!
