Cornerstone Ranch Outreach and Development VISTA (McKinney)
 
 
 
Cornerstone Ranch is a unique home and day program for adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. This family-centered environment creates a safe place where independence thrives, character grows, and confidence is nurtured. Located on 42 acres just outside of McKinney, Texas, Cornerstone’s 10,000-square-foot residential home comfortably accommodates seven adults with disabilities residentially and two highly integrated care giving families. The Cornerstone staff strives to help each resident and day program participant feel loved, respected, and safe. Cornerstone Ranch exists to enable the residents and day program participants to experience three core values: Community integration – Be productive members of our local community by serving others; Abundant life – Live an abundant life through which they realize their God-given potential and enjoy every day to its fullest; and Family-centered Environment – Experience the joy of living with people who truly love them and celebrate their lives. . The Outreach and Development VISTA at Cornerstone Ranch will build capacity by increasing community awareness of the agency and increasing financial support through events and grant writing efforts to raise at least $100,000 to support programming needs. AmeriCorps VISTA members perform only indirect service; interaction with clients will be limited and the member will spend the majority of his or her time in an office setting. As a Cornerstone Ranch VISTA you will be part of a cohort coordinated by the AmeriCorps VISTA North Texas project at Chisholm Trail RSVP, Inc. Early applications strongly encouraged.
