Hebrews 13:16 ESV
The central mission of our shelter is to provide safe, secure temporary housing and supports to address an immediate crisis for homeless individuals who would otherwise be living in places not meant for human habitation. Our core purpose is to work with you to secure a safe alternative housing placement or permanent housing, as rapidly as possible, and to link you with necessary follow up supports to help stabilize you into housing.
A Cornerstone Mission emergency shelter stay is short and intended to help you transition to a more appropriate place as quickly as possible. Our goal is to assist you with addressing homelessness, stabilize, and assist you with identifying and implementing a plan for a pathway out, ideally to housing or to another more suited program or project type. You are strongly encouraged to actively participate in the supports provided to secure housing and meet other goals. Moving from homelessness to housing is the primary goal of our shelter. To this end, every program participant will be supported to create a concrete plan and undertake action steps for moving to housing other than the shelter, ideally to permanent housing.
Length of stay initially is up to 30 days. If you are actively participating in the supports provided and taking the action steps necessary for moving towards housing or another suited program or project type, you may submit the Request for Extension Form to your case manager for review and approval of up to an additional 30 days. If you are going to need more than 60 days of stay and are actively participating in the supports provided to secure housing, you must submit a second Request for Extension Form to your case manager; up to 30 additional days may be granted or a determination to exit or recommend a referral to a longer program model. These extensions are reviewed and approved by administration. The maximum length of stay is 90 days with approved extension requests.
