BENEFITING: Cornerstone Community Outreach
ORGANIZER: Cornerstone Community Outreach
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
I'm running for the shelter because I believe it is a great cause that really benefits a lot of people in a very real way. CCO doesn’t just provide temporary shelter and food, they provide a pathway to a better life. Last year, CCO on average placed a person in permanent housing every other day. While they provide a lot of support and services beyond basic needs, the thing that sticks out to me the most is that they have programs where families can stay together instead of being split across different shelters. I can't imagine what it would be like to become homeless and then have your family torn apart, so I think the work they are doing is incredibly important and changes lives.
