Two veterans came to East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network because they needed reliable transportation to their jobs. After working to earn enough for a down payment on a 1999 Ford Explorer one of the men said, “You have made me feel like a man again.”

Bethany took her three sons and escaped a threatening home situation. Now she needed a good paying job; but she had no experience. Cornerstone hired her for one of their paid internship programs. After completing her internship she wrote a thank you note to Cornerstone saying, “The opportunity to work at Cornerstone changed my life and showed me that I could do so much more than just work in a fast food restaurant in order to take care of my sons”

Angela climbed off the Greyhound bus in Tyler unsure how she and her husband would be able to pay the fees to transfer her CNA license to Texas.
Cornerstone gave her immediate employment empowering her to pay her fees; and therefore, find a good-paying, full-time job.
