Cornerstone Montclair is a new organization with a vision of fostering a community in which people of all abilities have opportunities for work, healthy movement and social engagement. By partnering with businesses, educators and service providers who share that vision, Cornerstone Montclair will create a vibrant hub of activity that welcomes people with various disabilities to work and enjoy life alongside their peers.
Cornerstone Montclair’s mission is delivered in a 3,000 square-foot building located at 198 Bellevue Avenue in Upper Montclair. Offering highly desirable, yet affordable space in the building, we have developed relationships with 5 to 6 mission partners whose businesses or non-profit organizations will provide job opportunities, professional services, and educational and recreational activities that compliment and support our mission. Cornerstone Montclair will have activities and businesses attractive to everyone, and will go out of its way to make sure that “everyone” includes people with disabilities.
In fulfilling our mission, Cornerstone Montclair focuses on three “pillars”: meaningful work, social engagement, and healthy living through movement.
