Childcare Licensure

We are excited about continuing along down the path to getting our childcare licensed! This picture is the beginning of us purchasing the remaining necessary supplies for us to open. A big THANK YOU to all who have donated to our childcare and have made this possibility a very near reality! Once our childcare is licensed, we will be able to provide care for the children of our residents between the ages of 2 and 6 while they are out at housing appointments, job interviews, doctor’s visit, or other important steps towards a successful future.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2012

Cornerstone Community Outreach was blessed by many volunteers the other day to help us celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. A group from the Family Literacy Project of the University of Illinois hosted an event that featured games and reading along with books and t-shirts for the kids to take with them. One of our case managers walked around showing off a picture of her and MLK from when she was a child as she shared stories about MLK and what he stands for. In addition, students from Mather High School and Uptown Christian School came to help serve a meal in the kitchen and to organize some of our donations. These projects and people combined made for a wonderful day! Thank you to all who were involved!

Beautiful Mural Painted By Local Agency

A group from a local agency called Alternatives came and painted this beautiful mural titled “The World Is Your Playground” for our roof top playground. It is a lively addition giving the playground used by our young residents a new brightness. Thank you so much!! This is a great beginning as we prepare to update the play space come Spring.
