  A nurturing home environment for your child.

Adolescence can be difficult for any young man, especially so for one with developmental disabilities. Cornerstone provides 24-hour supervised residential services to boys with developmental disabilities ages 14 to 21 to help with making the transition from adolescence into adulthood.

Personalized care and learning techniques help your child reach his fullest potential. The boys attend regular school during the day, but continue to grow when they get home, learning good hygiene, budgeting, laundry, home maintenance, and other skills. Each boy has his own bedroom.

It's not all work and no play. There are plenty of socialization activities both in-home and out in the community to enjoy. There are movie nights and dessert nights, visits to the YMCA, library, bowling, shopping and other outdoor activities. Throughout the year residents are invited to participate in seasonal activities such as going to the pumpkin farm, holiday parties and celebrations where family can join in for dinner and festivities. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit their children as often as possible. Many residents go home with their families for weekends and holidays, as well as family vacations.

All these facets come together along with specialized services like behavior analysis/management, psychiatric services, and medical oversight for a holistic approach to your child's growth and well-being.

All residents must be diagnosed with a developmental disability and qualify for funding through the Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Developmental Disabilities. Cornerstone staff can assist individuals and their families with securing funding for residential services.

Services available in greater Will County.

For more information, please call Cornerstone’s Service Access Manager at 815-741-7033.



    Learn, work and grow with caring support.

We encourage independence and choice with a generous helping of guidance along the way. With the help of staff, residents learn to use community resources, including public transportation. Professional psychiatry, counseling, dietary, behavior analysis, and basic nursing services are part of the program. Additional services include employment and community services.

Some live in group homes with 24-hour staff supervision; others live independently, receiving staff assistance with budgeting, shopping, and meal preparation.

In the evening and on weekends, residents may choose to participate in Special Olympics, arts and crafts, or cooking classes. Many residents enjoy volunteering for other community organizations.

Residents in our group homes receive careful supervision from qualified Cornerstone employees. They may learn daily living skills like cooking, keeping their home clean, and doing laundry. There's plenty of structured activity as well as leisure time.

Most residents spend their weekdays in one of Cornerstone's day programs where they can work, learn and grow.

  You have a safe place to stay.

We can help you find and keep a place to live. Homeless adults with severe and persistent mental illness may get help leasing an apartment or house.

Once you have a place to call your home, we can help you develop skills in socialization, budgeting, meal preparation, independent living skills, household maintenance, and medication management among other services. The goal of the housing program is to move people towards independence in the community. The time to achieve this goal varies with each individual, which means you may utilize the program you are in as long as you need to.

Special help is available for veterans of the United States Armed Forces and individuals with an HIV or AIDS diagnosis.

Services are provided at no cost to individuals who have Medicaid insurance. Some additional funding sources exist for outpatient services, please call for further information.
