About Cody's Corner
My name is Stephanie. Cody’s Corner is the heart of my soul. At a young age, my parents became foster parents, caring for children who needed a place to call home. I learned what it was like to be around children with different disabilities, including a dear friend that I grew up with that had down syndrome, who has since passed.
In 2003 I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in English. When my son Cody was six years old, I began working closely with families from the state of New Mexico as a Service Coordinator, where I oversaw the Respite Program and served on the board for the Human Rights Committee. As part of my responsibilities, I visited individual's homes each month to make certain they were being properly cared for to offer help to the whole family. I loved the families like they were my own.
In 2016 my new home became Arizona. I knew I wanted to continue working with disabled individuals, so I began my journey to open Cody's Corner.
I formed Cody's Corner in August of 2017 with a desire to take my passion for assisting adults with their unique challenges in the utmost kind and compassionate way. I have over 14 years of experience in the industry and know the level of commitment, heart and compassion required to service these amazing individuals.
