The mission of the 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.


East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network (Cornerstone) began as an outreach effort of Green Acres Baptist Church when they realized there was a better way to meet needs than offering a handout. The concepts behind Cornerstone’s mission were developed and incubated until, in 2013, Cornerstone received its stand-alone non-profit status. Cornerstone’s mission is to partner, in Christian LOVE, with churches, businesses, and nonprofits to assist PEOPLE in poverty with life transformations. We discovers the clients’ most pressing need and work with the referring organization to meet that need.



Homeless Prevention

East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network administers federal grant funds to prevent homelessness throughout East Texas. After undergoing a careful screening process, families receive funds to allow them to stay in their current housing, enabling them to remain stable and productive.


Cornerstone Resale and Donation Center

Cornerstone's Resale Stores in Tyler and Lindale make life affordable for people in East Texas. Thanks to our amazing donors we are able to make extremely high quality clothing and household items available to people at affordable prices.


Cornerstone Jobs

Cornerstone Jobs employees, trains, and places people in jobs. We employee people to work in our stores 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.
