About Cornerstone of Hope

After the sudden loss of Christi and Mark Tripodi’s son, Bobby, they struggled as a family to find a place for comfort as their whole lives changed.

Through answered prayers and the support of family and friends, Cornerstone of Hope’s Grief Center in Independence, Ohio  was founded in 2003. Cornerstone of Hope is a place where grieving families can receive compassionate individual counseling, support groups, and participate in memorial programs. Realizing the need for an additional location, Cornerstone of Hope opened a second grief center in Columbus to serve the Central Ohio community. However, these locations only serve those grieving the death of a loved one.

Cornerstone of Hope Lima is an answer to requests from our community to serve those facing challenges other than grief. In September 2014, Cornerstone of Hope Lima opened its doors in Lima, Ohio.  Remaining true to the core mission of Cornerstone of Hope, all counseling centers will bring compassion and healing in an inviting atmosphere to those struggling with the most difficult time in their lives.


Cornerstone of Hope is HIPAA compliant, offers confidential support services, and is a non-profit organization.
