Our Founders

Latasha and Cliff both grew up in the Urban Core of Kansas City from single parent homes and was raised to value education. They have three daughters, two have bachelor’s degrees and the youngest is pursuing her doctorate degree at Cornell University. Latasha and Cliff both took time off from their lucrative careers to start CornerStone because of the need they saw in their daughters, despite their affluent upbringing. Also, they understood the even greater need for underserved communities and felt the overwhelming desire to do something about it.
