Support For The Caregivers

Responding to COVID-19 by offering HOPE to professional caregivers, first responders and front line workers


Thanks to a generous grant, Cornerstone of Hope is now able to provide free individual counseling to professional caregivers, first responders and front line workers.

The ongoing pandemic we are experiencing has caused overwhelming stress, immense grief, and turmoil. Each of us has experienced individual and broadly shared fears and challenges, unlike any other year. However, few have been impacted as deeply as the caregivers and front line workers who continue to tirelessly serve our community. Cornerstone of Hope recognizes that all medical personnel are now working longer hours and seeing more deaths while they continue to isolate from their very own families. Front line workers have become the presence of hope and comfort to those who are dying alone.

If you, or someone you know, has experienced secondary trauma, emotional burnout, or compassion fatigue caused by job-related stressors, our clinical team is here to support you. Please call us at 216-524-4673 to schedule a virtual or in-person appointment at a time that is convenient for you.
