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.

John came to Cornerstone a month ago, lacking work history, he was totally unsure of himself. Right away our Client Service Coordinator started working with him on job and life skills. This week, he started a NEW JOB and has the confidence that he can do it.

Joe was living in a homeless shelter and wanted to work more than anything, but with no ID he didn’t know where to turn. The day he came in he was able to get his ID and start immediate employment at Cornerstone. Today, thanks to the guidance and support he received while participating in our job training program, he is working a job in the community and is now excited about the future! 

Two veterans came to East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network because they needed reliable transportation to their jobs. After working to earn enough for a down payment on a 1999 Ford Explorer one of the men said, “You have made me feel like a man again.”
