Hayden Mathias Tribute

Hayden Mathias lost his battle with substance abuse on August 27th at the age of 22.

The outpouring of love for the Mathias family has been remarkable. Because of the generous donations made in Hayden’s honor, Cornerstone for Hope, in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Certification Board, will sponsor a Certified Recovery Specialist training series in the Spring of 2021. Certified Recovery Specialist (CRS) is a peer-support position formally recognized by the Pennsylvania Certification Board. Participants in this certification program will receive education in recovery management, education & advocacy, professional ethics & responsibility, confidentiality, and addictions.

Cornerstone will offer this program to our approved partners: Libertae, Market Street Mission, and Manor of Hope. Training will be free to participants.

The Board of Directors at Cornerstone for Hope thanks you for the opportunity to continue our mission to educate the community about substance abuse.
