Cornerstone Ranch

Cornerstone RanchThis 42-acre ranch, just outside of McKinney, TX, is a growing development of a different kind. Cornerstone Ranch is an organization that provides residential housing and day programs to adults with special needs. Since its inception in 2006, Cornerstone has focused on family-centered, community living. Residents enjoy an independent life with their peers and the support of their staff family.

The 10,000 sq ranch house is just the beginning. Cornerstone has big dreams for this special needs community. Their 10-20 year expansion plan includes multiple group homes, various facilities, a barn, and activity center. Many of the firms working on the expansion are providing gifts of service in support of the project. Alpha is currently contributing construction materials testing for the ranch and is working alongside RPM xConstruction and Mesa Design Group. Alpha is proud to be a part of this growing community and is excited to help make visions a reality.Alpha Testing, Inc. Logo
