This past year, 2013, has been filled with many adventures. Cornerstone Community Outreach (CCO) has been privileged to walk with many families and individuals as they pass through a very difficult time in their life. By the time they reach our doorstep, the majority of our shelter guests have lost everything. Unfortunately, some have suffered more loss than you and I can imagine and homelessness is just one more thing on their plate.
We are committed to partnering with our shelter guests through this time by assisting them in stabilizing their finances, housing, and ultimately their lives. It has been an honor to help those who come through our doors. It is an experience that we would not trade and we look forward to another year of serving those who are less fortunate.
Our mission at CCO is to help people recover from the hardships of homelessness with dignity while helping them restore their God-given worth and self-esteem.
In 2013, over 170 people moved into permanent housing from one of CCO’s shelter programs or through street outreach. It is always a joy to see former residents proudly showing off their new apartment keys!
Every donation helps bring our homeless families and individuals one step closer to stability and permanent housing. Will you consider donating today?
