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.

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.
