You have the power to transform our nation’s capital into a better, safer place for women in transition.

By joining our Cornerstone family as a donor, a volunteer, or an advocate in your community, you can help women take control of their own lives.

With a powerful donation to Cornerstone, you’ll support women at every stage of their journey, from those staying in our emergency shelter overnight to those who need long-term support to reach their full potential.

As a dedicated Cornerstone volunteer, you’ll stand alongside women as they build lives of stability, peace, and joy.

When you raise your voice in your community, you’ll become an important ally who shines a light on the often overlooked issue of homelessness in Ottawa.

No matter how you choose to be involved, you’ll be making a world of difference!

Donor Bill of Rights


You can be a part of the solution to homelessness. With your gift to Cornerstone today, you’ll provide safe, affordable housing and the right supports for women making the transition from a crisis to a better life.


Your kindness today will send a powerful message to women on the journey to healing and independence. It says: You are important, you are valuable – and I’m standing with you, no matter what.

Starter Kit Program

When a woman moves out of a Cornerstone Residence and into her own apartment, she has almost nothing. You can transform her house into a home by contributing to a Starter Kit of basic household items she’ll need. See how you can build a Starter Kit here.

Food Donations

Donations of food provide delicious, nutritious meals for women in all our residences. See a list of food donations we can accept.
