Cornerstone provides emergency shelter and safe affordable permanent housing for women in Ottawa. 100% net proceeds of the sale will provide much needed funding for the emergency shelter and Living rough on the streets takes a serious toll on a woman’s body, health and spirit. Oftentimes, women experience chronic illness and malnutrition.
Cornerstone has the budget for only $4.27 for each woman to eat every day, three times a day and to accommodate up to 61 women each night.They serve three meals a day. Of the $326,000 that they raise every year for critical shelter needs, almost one-third is for food costs.
