About Cornerstone Housing for Women

We provide emergency shelter and supportive, permanent housing for women and gender-diverse people in Ottawa.


At Cornerstone, women experience what ‘home’ truly means – often, for the first time in their lives.


We help them build a meaningful life that fits their individual needs.


Cornerstone's vision

Everyone has a home in a community that supports them to live with dignity and hope.


Cornerstone's mission

We provide a continuum of housing and support for women and gender-diverse people that is inclusive and reduces barriers.


We serve almost two hundred women every day. We have more than 100 full and part-time staff and almost 160 extraordinary volunteers who provide on-site support and refer women to local resources
