Partner with CCO

Cornerstone Community Outreach cannot continue to offer aid and services to people experiencing homelessness without you!

Our financial, volunteer and program partners are vital to our work. We want to thank all those who have partnered with us in the past and want to encourage partnership with us in the future. It really takes a community of people to support those who are struggling with housing, food, and health security.

Donate

 

Donate Financially

Though CCO receives federal and state funding through DFSS, we still rely on the generosity of others to continue our work with those experiencing homelessness. Please consider partnering with us financially to support the people we serve. Look at our yearly financial statements to see how your monetary gifts directly impact people who are experiencing homelessness.

Donate Goods

Many times our residents come to us with the clothes on their backs and nothing more. One of our many services to our clients is a free store that has clothes and basic housewares. For a list of things we accept, go to our Donate Page.

Program Partners

The people we encounter in our work have so many needs and we cannot meet them all on our own. Community is so important in the work we do and so we partner with many organizations to provide supportive care outside of our basic mission to house the homeless. Our program partners provide food, special meals, basic hygiene products, birthday parties, haircuts, life classes, media and so much more. Thank you so much to all our community of partners.

Funding in Part

CCO receives funding in part by:

US Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, CSBG,
Chicago Dept. of Family Support Services,
Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO),
Illinois State Board of Education,
and our wonderful donors.
