Do good and do what you love…
What do you love to do? Knit? Paint? Run? Bake? Recently, we have had a growing number of CCO supporters who are doing good by doing what they love and donating a portion of their profits to help alleviate homelessness. Here is just one example…
Chicago potter, Chuck Escue, has been donating 50% of the profits from his hand-crafted earthenware items to Cornerstone Community Outreach. We think it’s a beautiful combination of art and generosity. Thank you, Chuck!
What do you love to do?
Team CCO is Cornerstone Community Outreach’s growing fitness charity team. Team members meet together, volunteer, and challenge themselves through training and fund raising for the families and individuals sheltered at CCO. These efforts directly benefit the lives of our shelter guests and help to alleviate homelessness in Chicago.
In the past, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon has been the centerpiece of Team CCO’s fitness year. This year the team is offering a broad range of charitable fitness options. They are:
Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle - March 30, 2014
Merrell Down & Dirty Obstacle Race - June 1, 2014
Chicago Half Marathon – September 7, 2014
Bank of America Chicago Marathon - October 12, 2014

Merry Christmas from Leland House!
Leland House is CCO’s Permanent Supportive Housing Program. Leland has full-time case managers that serve families living in the 18 apartment units. Each year staff and volunteers work tirelessly to put together a beautiful meal and gift giving at the Leland House Christmas Party.
CCO staff, donors and volunteers work long and hard to make the holidays special for our shelter guests. That includes families with children and single men and women. Help us make the holidays bright! Monetary donations go a long way in filling the gaps in gift and goods donated to CCO.
