Community Services

At Cornerstone support goes beyond shelter. We help to empower women to thrive through community programming.  Women, children and youth have the opportunity to access transformative programs that teach coping strategies (provide solution-focused counselling), safety planning, risk management, child witness programming, or provide access to family court support.

Cornerstone lives true to our values and is committed to ensuring our services are accessible for everyone. Please talk to us about any extra supports you may need.

Child & Youth Counselling

Individual counselling with a dedicated youth counsellor is available for children and youth in the community who are in need of support. Counsellors meet with clients in person in Cobourg and at 4 satellite locations throughout the County to increase accessibility and reduce barriers to service.

Group Counselling

Clients who have received individual counselling may benefit from group counselling also. Group Counselling connects individuals with similar experiences and has them participate in counselling with one another and 1-2 designated counsellors. This approach helps create connections amongst participants and can be a great benefit to those who feel isolated.
