Sept. 14 Board Matter: Cornerstones 50th Anniversary


Joint With Chairman Jeff McKay, Supervisor Foust and Supervisor Palchik 


Cornerstones, formerly known as Reston Interfaith, is celebrating its 50th Anniversary on September 30. Established in 1970, Cornerstones has become a crucial human services provider and advocate for our neighbors in need. Cornerstones has touched the lives of more than 16,000 people in need, including 4,000 families and 5,000 children. 

An outstanding partner with Fairfax County, its management and staff have been exceptional in their professionalism and dedication. Its successful programs and wraparound services include housing, food and financial assistance, childcare and youth services, and community and family strengthening.

Cornerstones manages the Embry Rucker Community Shelter in Reston and owns and operates 106 homes that serve low-income individuals and families, as well as those leaving homelessness. This outstanding community partner also facilitates a foreclosure and eviction prevention program and hypothermia prevention program, provides affordable childcare at Laurel Learning Center, and manages Opportunity Neighborhoods for Reston and Herndon and the Herndon Neighborhood Resource Center. 


Mr. Chairman, I move that the Office for Public Affairs prepare a proclamation of congratulations for presentation at the Oct. 19, 2021 Board meeting.
