Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education

Mission: Our mission is to help parents advocate for an appropriate education for their students with disabilities and to help create opportunities for success. We level the playing field regarding the special education process, so parents of children with disabilities no-longer need to feel bullied or intimidated or settle for an inappropriate education for their kids! We consult, coach, train, and advocate for these parents. They learn to navigate and fully utilize the special education services that are available to their child. Parents learn how to become better educational advocates for their kids.

Results: Since 2015 we have helped over 428 families in over 4560 hours of direct advocacy services in 5 different NE Florida counties on over 176 different schools. We have been able to get increased school provided services that expanded students' ability to learn, raised student grades and elevated the success rates for both the students and their schools.

I’m extremely thankful for Cornerstone! It was a God send that Mrs. Wildes over heard my emotional conversation on the phone with the school my daughter was attending. She apologized for over hearing, but it was the greatest blessing! My daughter received the tools she needed to be successful and graduate high school. Today she is doing absolutely wonderful! Thriving and doing what she loves! Thank you God for sending Cornerstone Special Education Alliance to our family!!!
