Cornerstone’s secure shelter is a safe place for adults and their children escaping a dangerous or escalating situation.
Shelter residents receive all the basic necessities an individual or family in crisis needs, including meals, toiletries, clothing, school supplies, and transportation. Our clients also receive access to the full continuum of Cornerstone’s legal, supportive, housing, parenting, therapy and transitional housing services.
When clients arrive in emergency housing and for the length of their shelter stay, advocates help them address their current situation, make goals, and consider options for the next step.
Cornerstone’s 35 bed shelter is thoughtfully designed to feature family living spaces, including one fully handicap accessible unit, a teen room, youth room and woman’s lounge. Laundry facilities and telephones are also available.
Male victims receive safe and comfortable alternative housing while accessing Cornerstone’s comprehensive services. This option is also available for elderly or transgender individuals who might not be comfortable in a shelter setting.
