At Cornerstone, we believe that everyone who needs help deserves access to mental health care. Our Compassion Fund covers up to 90% of the cost of counselling.
We have a sliding scale for rates which means fees are set according to each client’s income. Those who do not have benefits to cover the cost of counselling and those who have a gross household income of less than $100,000 per year qualify for fee subsidies. Counselling is not covered by Alberta Health, so any ‘profits’ we receive from full-fee clients are put back into our Compassion Fund. We also rely on the generosity of donors, sponsors, and grants to run programs that help low-income adults, families, couples, and children find hope and recovery.
At this time, approximately 70 per cent of our clients require counselling fee subsidies. By making a donation to our Compassion Fund, life-changing counselling will be accessible for those who otherwise would not be able to afford it.
