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.
HOW WE HELP
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.
