You are invited to make a difference in the lives of our special residents, joining many committed family members, employees, Board members, businesses and individuals in the community, event participants, and donors who generously give of themselves. You can support our mission to enhance the lives of people with developmental disabilities by joining the Board of Directors; attending our annual “Day at the Races” fundraiser, or by making a tax-deductible contribution to Cornerstone Community Homes, which is a California Nonprofit Benefit Corporation.


We are grateful for monetary contributions, which help us provide quality care for our clients, training for employees, and capital improvements for our homes. Cornerstone Community Homes, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax deductible.

You may also help us through the donation of goods or services. Our residents would love to receive arts and crafts supplies, games, puzzles, videotapes, DVDs, or gift cards. We occasionally have a need for sturdy wood furniture such as end or coffee tables, nightstands, dressers or chairs (with no upholstery), and other household items in good, working condition.


Meetings are held six times a year at Cornerstone’s administrative office. The Board is responsible for governing the organization; participating in fundraising activities; supporting the agency by making an investment of personal experience, skills, and knowledge; and advocating for the developmentally disabled population.



Every year we have a “Day at the Races” fundraiser at Golden Gate Fields in Berkeley, California, usually in June. This fun event is organized by long-time Board Member and Parent, Nancy Smith and her daughter, who give generously of their time to ensure its success.
