Nourishing lives at many levels is the cornerstone of a community that cares.

The current crisis is but the latest call to action we’ve answered over 25 years.

Feeding the mind, body and spirit is a staple of any healthy community. While events surely amplify these needs, we’ve taken an approach that stewardship of our most valuable assets—our families, our citizens, our community’s future—is a daily commitment.

It’s our daily bread at Cornerstone Community Care.

Our approach is integrated to be sure that these needs are met decisively and completely. It is more than gathering resources, like food and school supplies, it is also the effective distribution of those resources across a wide footprint of city and rural areas, precisely pinpointing needs with enough weight to affect an outcome.

There is no cherry-picking because our network of allied partners across industries, community servants and churches knows that success comes by closing every gap, making every touchpoint count. For example, boosting reading achievement among our kids is not a one-off strategy; we are relentless to be sure even the steepest goals can be met by continuity of purpose and never taking the foot off the accelerator.

2.3 million meals in 2019 alone across our city and rural areas
6,300 backpacks distributed across 21 schools filled with Back-to-School essentials in 2019
Gang intervention to improve the lives of families in the most impacted local neighborhoods
16,800 volunteer hours covering 42 local distribution points

Meeting the needs of the underserved cannot be accomplished by programs that under-serve. This is why, whether its meals to meet today’s crisis, or tools to keep our kids reading and achieving, or it’s a need in-between, your consistent support allows the deepest penetration to meet the needs daily, not just in crisis.
