The Cornerstone Building is a three-story structure originally built in 1901 and renovated in 1985. The facility provides services and bridge housing for clients experiencing chronic homelessness with acute health and mental health needs, allowing them to stabilize and prepare for community reintegration.

The ground level currently houses public client and secure staff program. The second and third levels house a total of 18 resident apartments—nine units per floor. This renovation includes new ground floor entry spaces, a multi-purpose room, open offices and administrative spaces, relocated client exam rooms, and the reconfiguration of the existing ground floor to add two ADA accessible resident apartments. New kitchenettes, showers, fixtures and accessories are featured in each apartment with updated finishes and paint throughout.

The Cornerstone Service Center emerges as a vital resource, combining compassionate care with thoughtfully designed spaces to empower residents on their journey to stability and independence.
