Beautiful planters and flowers were installed along Clifton Avenue just outside of CCO’s Hannah House and Sylvia Center! Andrew Shantz made the planters from repurposed wood. He and fellow gardner, Ted Jindrich filled the containers with soil and colorful flowers.
The flowers bring a burst of color and life to Clifton Avenue. These improvements benefit our shelter guests, staff and neighbors. Thank you!
As many of you know, a portion of our shelter budget comes from the City of Chicago’s Department of Family and Support Services. We are experiencing a slowdown in the contract process and it is having an effect on our program budget. Due to the delay, we are experiencing an ever tightening operating budget. We need a boost to get us through this anticipated delay. Please consider contributing to this very urgent and current need. We appreciate whatever you can give.
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.

Chicago potter, Chuck Escue has been donating 50% of the profits from his earthenware items to Cornerstone Community Outreach. We think it’s a beautiful combination of art and generosity.
If you are interested in purchasing Chuck’s wares you will find them at Citizen Skate Shop located at 920 W. Wilson Avenue in Chicago.
Thank you Chuck!
