A Little History
Cornerstone Community Outreach was founded in 1989 by the long-standing church mission, Jesus People USA Evangelical Covenant Church. With the assistance of the City of Chicago, CCO purchased and rehabilitated what is now the CCO Shelter. The building accommodates a large kitchen and dining area, and a large dormitory for women and children. A one-million dollar renovation furnished us with the daycare center, the three intact families rooms, the adolescent boys dorm, new bathroom facilities with showers, the laundry room, and recreational facilities.
Over the following twenty years, CCO’s programs have expanded to serve nearly 500 men, women and children daily. With Cornerstone’s help these families and individuals can begin to build a new life, one step at a time..
-Funded in part by the Chicago Department of Family Support Services, and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.-
-CCO participates in using the HMIS for it’s Interim Housing clients.
