About Cornerstone Landing

In rural communities across Canada there is an epidemic of Hidden Youth Homeless. These youth survive primarily through 'couch surfing' and when all other natural supports fail, they sleep outside, under bridges, in parks, trailers, cars and abandoned buildings.


Cornerstone Landing is a non-profit charitable organization that supports youth who are homeless or at risk of homelessness across the County of Lanark, located just West of Ottawa. We are the only agency in the county dedicated to preventing, reducing and ending youth homelessness. In 2018, we launched a capital campaign using funds from events like CNOY and were excited to purchase our first house in December of 2020. We now have 3 transitional beds for short term housing and have built Lanark County's first secondary housing unit (1 bedroom) for affordable housing. Our Tiny Home will be used as a detached secondary bachelor unit. Funds raised from this event helped us make this all happen!
