Cornerstone Ministries offers a full range of activities for adults with intellectual and physical disabilities in a family-centered environment with Christian values. The McKinney-based ranch has six adult residents who live on-site and even more “ranchers” who visit for day camps from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Cornerstone helps them gain independence, life skills, job training and placement.
Now, thanks to the CoServ Charitable Foundation, they can add weekly cooking classes to the list of activities. CCF contributed $1,200 to Cornerstone Ministries that will buy food for the cooking classes. Eating a balanced diet is one of the six pillars that support the core values at Cornerstone Ranch.
This is the first time CCF has contributed to Cornerstone Ministries.
Other classes offered at Cornerstone Ministries include art, ceramics, candle making, life skills training and daily exercise. The ranch sits on 42 acres in eastern McKinney.
The CoServ Charitable Foundation focuses on meeting basic human needs, promoting community vitality and supporting education. Since CCF was established in 2004, about $12 million has been distributed to worthy causes across North Texas. Funding for most of the grants comes from CoServ customers through Operation Roundup®—a program where customers “round up” their monthly utility bill to the nearest dollar.
