Help Transform Lives Today!

The mission of East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network is to partner, in Christian love, with churches, businesses and other nonprofit agencies to assist people in poverty with life transformation.

Each August we don’t run a marathon to TRANSFORM LIVES with East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network!  

Your partnership today makes TRANSFORMATION possible, providing programs that continue to impact lives in East Texas through:
 * Immediate Employment
 * Job Training
 * Affordable clothing, food and household items – OVER 15,000 transactions every year
 * Beds for women and children when transitioning to independent living from the East Texas Crisis Center
 * Career Clothing for Christian Women’s Job Corps Graduates AND MORE!





Cornerstone Jobs employees, trains, and places people in jobs. We employee people to work in our store and in our building doing everything from sorting clothes to laying tile. We seek to identify their skill set and let them use their skills to do their best work.

Vicky, a mom of three, had to leave her job when she was expecting her fourth child. After her baby was born, she was only able to find part-time work and struggled to make ends meet. THANKS to our supporters, she is now participating in the jobs program at Cornerstone, meeting her children’s needs while preparing for the future!  

After a stroke and some other challenges, Brad became homeless. He had been working to get back on his feet, but found it hard to get a job and knew disability income wouldn’t be enough. Thanks to community partners, he is able to work at Cornerstone, while receiving guidance and support to meet his future goals.   

Michelle came to Cornerstone seeking a new direction and is now part of the jobs program, building the foundation she needs for the future! Please pray for her as she seeks the desire of her heart; to find, in her words “a career” instead of another job.
