Shop For A Cause!


Shop For A Cause with Cornerstone & Swedemom.com

This holiday season shop our online retail store for that special gift through our partnership with Swedemom Center of Giving.

With Swedemom’s help, we are able to turn high-end donations, vintage goods, and items that aren’t immediately useful for shelter guests into useable income for Cornerstone.

This process allows us to be better stewards of peoples’ good intentions and make the best use of ALL donations while helping to ensure we can continue to provide necessary services for Chicago’s most marginalized.

So if you’re looking for antique doorknobs from the 1800s, designer cashmere sweaters, the missing piece in Grandma’s tchotchke collection or just specialty cookware, we might have exactly what you need at a great price!

To shop visit us at Cornerstone – Swedemom Center of Giving.

Join Team CCO for the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

Over 330 people stay at Cornerstone Community Outreach who are experiencing homelessness. What’s one way you can help them on their path to being housed?

Run a marathon!

Yes, that is a daunting task, but for those who decide to put one foot in front of the other, the path is there!

With Team CCO, our charity fitness crew, you can use your love of running to bring support to Cornerstone. Through fundraising, connecting with others to build awareness, and on course visibility, you can help a family get housed!

The 2019 Team CCO runners raised enough money combined to provide 4,195 nights of shelter for families experiencing homelessness. Our goal for 2020 is to raise enough for over 6,000 nights. Help us meet that goal, and meet your own too!

Team CCO has guaranteed entries to get you in now.

Burlington Delivering Good!

As Burlington kicks off their 13th annual coat drive, Common (yes that Common!) and Common Ground Foundation brought in coats to start it up. This partnership including Delivering Good brings hundreds if not thousands of coats to Chicago residents in need, and specifically to those experiencing homelessness being advocated for by Cornerstone and its staff.

If You Only Knew

 

This summer a beautiful mural was created at Cornerstone Community Outreach. It is called “If You Only Knew”, by Steven Teller. #MostBeautifulMuralInChicago

The empowered female figure is an emblem of hope, resilience, and natural elegance. Hardy Blue Asters which surround the young woman, are a symbol of strength. The image is intended to bring hope and inspiration to the families and single adults who are moving to safe, stable housing through Cornerstone Community Outreach.

The Hannah House program that it is painted on, provides safe shelter 55 women and children and has been operating successfully since 1989, enabling hundreds of families to move from homelessness to stable housing.

As we are nearing the end of 2019, we ask that you consider making a substantial donation to help this amazing work continue. The program is funded in part by the City of Chicago, however we need supporters like you to complete the success. Click below to see the donate today, several levels are available too!
