The mission of Cornerstones for Kids (C4K) is to improve the lives and circumstances of vulnerable children.  C4K is  a not for profit organization formed in 2004, and led by the Cornerstone Consulting Group, to house and manage the Human Services Workforce Initiative (HSWI).  The premise is that human services can positively impact the lives of vulnerable children and families, but that we cannot produce better outcomes for these individuals without addressing the workforce charged with helping them.  In partnership with key national and state organizations in the fields of child welfare, juvenile justice, child care, youth development and employment services, C4K is identifying the challenges facing this workforce, highlighting best practices, and working toward policy solutions.  HSWI is funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.  For  more information about Cornerstones for Kids and HSWI, please visit: www.cornerstones4kids.org.
