Non-Profit Status and Financial Policies

Cornerstone is headquartered in Huntsville, Texas (near Houston). The organization conducts events at various venues throughout the country. The ministry operates with an independent Board of Directors responsible for ministry oversight and accountability. Cornerstone Marriage & Family Ministries operates as an IRS approved, tax-exempt, 501c3 non-profit organization that provides marriage restoration intensive weekend programs to people of all faiths, regardless of their ability to pay.

Cornerstone conducts marriage intensive weekends across the US, (offering both in-person and online services). We operate in five satellite locations including: Houston, TX, Dallas, TX, Safety Harbor, FL, Colorado Springs, CO and Columbus, Ohio.

Couples from 43 different states have participated in one or more of the various aspects of services which Cornerstone offers. This is accomplished through the generosity of our donors and by our offering financial assistance to those who would not otherwise be able to participate our programs. Additional funding is provided by participants who can afford to pay/donate registration fees for services rendered.

Cornerstone employs approximately 12 employees and contractors. Importantly, the organization offers services to all couples who want and need help, regardless of their ability to pay. How? The organization is fortunate to be supported by the generosity of donors, some of whom have been participants in our programs, and others who who have not. Many of the organization’s financial partners donate full or a partial amount of our suggested fees for services rendered, (a “Registration Fee”). This also enables us to provide financial assistance to many who otherwise could not afford to participate in a marriage restoration program or in marriage counseling.
