The number of homeless fathers with children is increasing. It is our privilege to welcome dads with kids into CCO and help them achieve the success for themselves and their families. Take a few moments and read Lydell’s story here. Or take a look at the other success stories available in Our Story section on the right.

“Smile!” Mothers who live at CCO, like mom’s everywhere, cherish pictures of their children. It’s a beautiful reminder that families stick together even in the toughest of circumstances and it’s always a joy to look at those smiling faces. Today we want to applaud the mothers of CCO for their determination while being homeless. It brings a smile to our faces to see their compassion and hard work within their families.
At this time, over 40 moms along with their children are being sheltered in one of Cornerstone Community Outreach’s three family programs. While we are encouraged by the diligence mom’s display during stressful times we are also anxious to see them in permanent, stable housing.
Help us to continue to support the moms and children being sheltered at CCO. Donate today! Your contribution really makes a difference in the lives of our families. Thank you!

Happy birthday to you! 14 children living at CCO have their birthdays in the month of April. Each month, CCO staff make sure parents get new gifts to give to their child on their birthday. Celebrations and milestones are important. And that is especially true during difficult or transitional times.
