I came to Cornerstone Housing for Women more than eight years ago empty and longing for a place to call home. Because of you, I have a home, comfort, and community. Cornerstone means the world to me. I don’t know where I’d be without them.

For 14 long years, I battled my own demons of anorexia, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction. There were a few times in my life when I didn’t think I’d make it to tomorrow, but I did.

If it weren’t for donors like you, Cornerstone staff, counselors, and the amazing women I’ve met at Cornerstone I would not be here today.

When I was only 19 years old, I moved into Cornerstone’s MacLaren House. I moved into room 301 at the time. I remember that first day I moved in and it honestly, felt like the right fit.

It felt like home.

For the first time in a long time, I had found a place to call home.

I’m happy I’ll be home for the holidays at Cornerstone with the staff and women who truly make the holidays feel special. You help us make the holidays a special time of year.

For many of us, the holiday season can be a difficult time. It’s a reminder that I didn’t always have the comfort, community, and love that I have now. Please consider giving a special gift this holiday season.

Thank you for your continued compassion and kindness.

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.
