Consider Donating to CCO

Please consider partnering with us as a financial donor today!

Our essential work here at Cornerstone is made possible by the generosity of organizations and individuals like you. Although CCO does receive funding from federal and state budgets, these do not cover all of our base operating costs, let alone all of the supportive services we offer. Your tax deductible financial donations go directly into our programs and allow us to keep beds available for families and individuals experiencing homelessness while assisting them on their journey toward finding housing.
