Born of one man’s dream, Cornerstone of Hope Orphanage has a strong, spirited, sustainable mission: Provide high-quality care and love to orphan or vulnerable children, and if possible, find each child a loving forever family. We strive to stabilize and provide hope for orphaned and underprivileged children. We provide education to central Iowans regarding the cultural differences between Africa and the United States to improve support for African refugees or immigrants who have obtained citizenship in the United States.”
