We know that secure housing — whether it’s temporary or long-term — is the vital first step for many women to break the cycles of homelessness, poverty, and abuse. And, we know that the demand is rising for affordable housing in Ottawa.

That’s why, along with the support of the community and our wonderful partners, we are building a beautiful new housing community that will provide a comforting home for 42 women who need moderate support. The women who move into this new space in Ottawa’s west end will be transitioning out of crisis, but will still need some help living in the community.

The space is round and warm with a big open entryway that was built so the house would feel like walking into open welcome arms. It has a peaceful back courtyard, a big yard with a lovely swing, and was created as a sanctuary for all who enter.

The Sisters, Cornerstone Housing for Women, architect Barry Hobin and Uniform Urban Developments have come together for the redevelopment of this space. All parties care deeply about the Westboro community and want to see this building used in an inspiring way.

Together with help from this caring community, Cornerstone must finish its capital campaign for $1.9 million in 2018 to make this residence a reality. Please give today.

“Cornerstone became my home when I needed stability and had nowhere to turn. At first I trusted no one. I fought the addictions program that was offered. My turning point was hearing and finally believing that I was valued and needed – that I made a great addition to Cornerstone’s family.” – Ashley, Cornerstone resident
