We are proud to work with such a solid organization that continues to have such a profound impact on peoples’ lives.

Cornerstone Relocation Group, a full service global mobility company, has chosen to continue their support of the North Star Foundation in its efforts to place service dogs with children whose challenges range from autism, to serious medical conditions, to grief over loss of a parent. This marks the company’s fifth year in supporting the North Star Foundation.

In addition to ongoing financial contributions, Cornerstone raised awareness of the North Star program by inviting North Star founder Patricia Gross, along with Mia, a puppy-in-training, to join the Cornerstone team in their exhibit booth at the Worldwide Employee Relocation Council Global Workforce Symposium this past October in Dallas, Texas. Mia will eventually be partnered with a five-year-old boy with autism.

“Having Patty and the puppy in our booth was a great way to share North Star’s story about the important work they are doing to help children and their families. We are proud to work with such a solid organization that continues to have such a profound impact on peoples’ lives,” said Janelle Piatkowski, president and CEO.
