Meet Suson.

You gave me my mom back.

Cornerstone Housing for Women helped my mom blossom into the beautiful person she has always been, which was masked because of her mental illness.

The staff validated her, they didn’t make her feel judged. They helped her light to shine brightly. After years of trauma, being in and out of hospitals, or under the control of another person, she finally found her home, she finally found herself again.

My mom moved into Cornerstone’s Booth Residence in 2010 and she was genuinely happy for the first time – in a long time. She lived here happily until her health declined, she needed more specialized health care and peacefully passed away in 2016.

She truly blossomed while living at Booth Street...
