Volunteerism remains key focus for company

Cornerstone Mission held an Open House Saturday in conjunction with National Homeless Awareness Week and the organization's 10-year anniversary.

The faith-based, nonprofit Homeless Family Resource Center provides many services to people in need. Among these services is a 90-day emergency shelter with 22 bunks, providing a place for homeless men to stay as they search for a job. (Cornerstone Mission also runs Diana's Faith House, which provides shelter for homeless women and children.)

As Bill Peck, house supervisor, puts it, "I know the shelter has been a great help to a lot of guys who come through here. It's great to see these guys come in here with nothing and leave here with a great new lease on life."

Residents are held accountable for moving forward and given use of a computer and educational resources.

Cornerstone Mission is currently working on a 1,164 square foot expansion that will provide additional space for the food pantry, storage and more bunk room.

There is also a soup kitchen run by residents and volunteers that serves about 50-70 people a night between 4-5 p.m.

People can visit the shelter for walk-in showers, hygienic products, food, clothes, laundry, office services and other basic needs.

Cornerstone goes through about five boxes a day on average and about four trucks of food a month. Walmart donates many items, which are either given to those in need or sold at a yard sale held by the mission on the First Friday of every odd month.

Individuals in the community also donate items, money or time.

2013 has already seen many people in need of services. Statistics gathered through the month of September show a yearly average so far of six walk-in showers a night, three donations of clothing to those in need a night, six hygiene packets a day, and 70 soup kitchen meals provided a day.

The nonprofit greatly appreciates donations, either financial or of new or gently used items, that can help them continue their mission.

They are located at 3049 Sycamore Ave. Hours are 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Call for emergency assistance on Sunday at (928) 757-5312.
