Alumni Client Family Testimonial

I feel like Cornerstone gave him all the right tools. He knew how to do it. It was something we could have never done. I just could totally see kind of a personality change in him of wanting, and knowing, that he could achieve and do higher things and greater things. That has to be the people (at Cornerstone).”
