Adult & Family Programs

Cornerstone Family Programs builds and maintains healthy families through programs for adults. Through our services, our adults and families gain access to:

  • Education and skill-building courses
  • Financial literacy and management
  • Workforce development
  • Recreational activity

At Cornerstone, we understand the unique challenges faced by many of our families who must work multiple jobs to sustain their incomes, as well as larger-scale issues affecting those in our community each day.

Pathways to Work

Pathways to Work aims to integrate and acclimate adults and families into our community’s workforce through resources and connections to employers.

The program allows participants to build paths of self-sufficiency and financial stability. Pathways to Work also offers educational opportunities related to job skills such as carpentry, painting, housekeeping, and related trades. Additionally, participants are given lessons in language, safety, civics, and workers’ rights and duties.

Pathways to Work is a huge success that brings together community members and companies in our community, and establishes Cornerstone as a resource that brings security and opportunity to all.

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

One of the attributes setting Morristown community apart from many others is its diversity. We are proud to be nestled in a town with residents of so many different cultural backgrounds.

Many employers and the majority of people in the area speak English, and often times conversational English skills are required at minimum to hold jobs. Our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program introduces and enhances English skills at beginner and intermediate levels, offered in fall and spring semesters.

For our Hispanic and Latino population, only 55% of Morris County residents reported speaking English well (intermediate/advanced reading, speaking, and writing skills) (source).

Cornerstone Family Programs and Morristown Neighborhood House, in our mission to provide everyone in our community a chance to live a productive life, offer courses in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).

Held in the Fall and in the Spring at Morristown Neighborhood House, classes are available at beginner and intermediate levels for students to learn basic conversational skills, as well as speaking, reading, and writing lessons to help them navigate in the English-speaking community. We also place an emphasis on English in the workplace as a component in teaching our students.
