Meet Two of Our Social Workers
Social Workers are dedicated to enhancing the well-being of others and meeting the basic needs of all people, especially the most vulnerable in our community.

For Social Work Month, we highlight Jeanine Gravette and Sandra Jessup, the two longest-tenured social workers at Cornerstones. During their combined 31 years of service, Jeanine and Sandra have helped hundreds of families and individuals overcome challenges, empowering them to reach to their full potential.
