Cornerstone moving in to Polk Building

Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers helped officially open the new Cornerstone Autism Center in the former city building.

The Polk Building is at 2 N. Madison Ave., and was renovated by Randy Faulkner & Associates.

Cornerstone specializes in one-on-one behavior analysis, serving children and young adults, from ages two- to 22 years old. The organization opened its first location in 2010 when it moved into the historic Polk Canning Company building at 380 Polk St., Greenwood.

The location on Polk Street will continue to serve as Cornerstone’s headquarters and a primary location for younger children. The new space will include programming for older children and young adults with autism who are working toward independence and the transition into adulthood.
