Since its founding as Reston Interfaith in 1970, Cornerstones has proudly partnered with congregations across Northern Virginia to bring stability, empowerment, and hope to vulnerable neighbors in need.
Cornerstones was founded by six local congregations representing Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish faiths. Today, we proudly partner with 14 Sponsoring Religious Organizations on our Board of Directors and over 100 Religious Organizations from diverse faith backgrounds to provide stability, empowerment, and hope for our most vulnerable neighbors. These congregations provide vital financial and in-kind donations as well as actively support our Assistance Services and Pantry Program (ASAPP), Hypothermia Prevention Program, and our Back-to-School, Thanksgiving Meals, and Gifts for Kids annual drives.
Their contributions of time, talent, and gifts are essential, and we are grateful for their partnership!

Monthly Faith Partner in Action Spotlight
Each month, Cornerstones wants to highlight the contributions of our Faith Partners In Action!
Cornerstones would like to say a huge thank you to Congregation Beth Emeth and Northern Virginia Hebrew Congregation for their incredible generosity at their Yom Kippur Food Drives this year. Thanks to your support, we collected 5,400 pounds of food and toiletries for our Assistance Services and Pantry Program. We are so grateful for your donations, and we hope our Jewish partners had an easy fast!
