CORNERSTONE OF HOPE is a Calgary based,
not-for-profit organization that helps families live through loss and thrive in the face of adversity.
Our programs for children and adults assist the participants to deal with the emotions around
divorce, separation, or death and help restore emotional wholeness. Each program is a 12 week, small peer-support group that meets to share with each other and gain the emotional strength needed to be able to deal with what life has dealt to them. There are groups for all ages.   Programs begin in September and January each year. To find a location or register for a program, contact Dennis or Irene Sanders
The HEARTZONE program helps children realize their self-worth, accept what has taken place in their families, and get on with being a child.
The Cornerstone for Teens program helps teens work through the effects of their parent's divorce on their own life. The interactive group sessions are a lot of fun, full of energy and very intense. New friendships and support are found here.

When to say YES, When to say NO; A boundary is a personal property line; it defines where you start and where you end. We'll provide you with examples and tools which will help you identify how to protect the core of your heart.
Transformations is an awesome video series coupled with a peer-support group that takes a serious look at the baggage that affects our lives.
Our children's groups are all about sharing with their group what is going on inside their emotions. It is in this sharing, receptive listening, and acknowledgement of their feelings that the children find healing and acceptance.
