Cornerstone Housing For Women’s Statement on Racial Justice

As an organization, we want to honour George Floyd’s life and so many other marginalized people who have suffered because of an unjust system. We will use this time to learn. We are committed to social justice, to honour Black women, marginalized communities, and positively contribute to the lives of People of Colour.

At Cornerstone Housing For Women, we provide emergency shelter and supportive housing to a diversity of women in an environment of hope and dignity. We serve many racialized women, especially Indigenous women, who have encountered systematic racism, and oppression.

To better serve our community, we will deliver anti-racism and anti-oppression training for our entire team – starting with our leadership – in an ongoing journey.”

We strive to expand our focus on inclusion and diversity in our volunteer, Board recruitment, and hiring processes.

We commit to learning from and elevating BIPOC (Black Indigenous and People of Colour) voices from our staff, community and movement in our communications channels.

Together, we strive to increase safe housing and to end homelessness.

As a Community Ministry of the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, we also look to our national and local leadership.
