A couch with a pillow for her mother. A TV for watching SpongeBob SquarePants. Ceiling lights for reading books and doing homework. And a piano so everyone can sing together. According to a young artist served by Cornerstones, these are the essential items in her “someday home” with her family.

Almost 16,000 local families, with upwards of 5,000 children. . .
turn to Cornerstones every year for a hand-up out of punishing cycles of homelessness and poverty. Their parents are forced to make impossible decisions daily – rent or childcare? Food or gas for the car? A doctor’s visit or the electric bill? Even as this region rapidly attracts major industries, too many low and moderate-income parents are struggling to live, work, and raise their children in Northern Virginia.
For 50 years,
Cornerstones has worked with our most vulnerable families to ensure stability, empowerment, and hope for a brighter future for themselves and their children.
With expert insight on how generational poverty and homelessness deeply affects the welfare of our children, Cornerstones works to solve their urgent needs and ignite change across our community.
