Help the Cartonia family
Buffalo City Mission’s Cornerstone Manor sits at the corner of North and Michigan. The spacious building provides emergency shelter for up to 16 single women and 5 families seeking protection from city streets or an abusive relationship. Up to 12 families and 46 single women can find hope and healing in the facility’s two-year resident recovery program.
On each of Cornerstone Manor’s three floors, homeless women and children find airy rooms for Bible study, adult and childhood education, life skills courses and recreation. There’s even a kitchen for cooking and nutrition classes! A courtyard, complete with basketball court and gazebo, allows residents to rest and play away from the busy street.
Cornerstone Manor Women and Children’s Shelter is a welcome relief from the uncertainties and fear homeless women and families face. For many, it’s the closest thing to home.
I am happy to say these clothes will be used by the women and children living there.
They are hoping to be in a house for Christmas and are working on that now. Kids started back to school last week.
Thank you all for your generosity and God Bless.
To our wonderful support system... If you are reading this, this means YOU! Our family, friends, community and even complete strangers has made ALL the difference in these last few weeks for our family. I still can't believe this all has happened. Our lives have been so very different since 5 am November 30. As heartbreaking and horrifying as it all is, the love and support from each and every one of you is felt. It truly is! The amount of donations of every kind has been MONUMENTOUS and we cannot possibly thank you all enough. Seeing the updates on this page takes my breath away. Literally. And ALL the wonderful clothing, toiletries and food has been so so helpful. Please, PLEASE know how very grateful we are for everything. The love, the prayers and the financial support is truly overwhelming and words cannot express how much it means to us all. To update everyone, the hotel has been great to us (the kids like the hot tub haha) and we are looking to get into a rental property in the next week or two. We are rebuilding our home right on our lot and we hope to be back there by the end of 2016. We will be renting furniture when we get a place and our insurance is covering new furniture for our new home when that time comes. The district has been terrific in working out logistics for the kids. For now the school bus comes where we need them to (hotel for now, rental when we get there). Our immediate needs have been met and we are ready to get to the next chapter in this ordeal. Again, THANK YOU everyone. You have not let us falter or fall and this family is so appreciative of that. I can't bear the thought of where we would be without all this love and support. From John, Samanntha, Violet, Zoe and John Jr., Merry Christmas to each and every one of you and your loved ones. ❤️
Thank you to everyone for your generosity and your prayers ♥ I am John's sister and I am so incredibly happy to see my brother and his family are so blessed to have so many amazing people in their lives. Even to the people who are strangers or acquaintances wanting to help ....Thank you so much! God is good and has a special plan for this family. God bless ♥
Thank you to everyone who has been leaving items at either my house or Michelle's. We are making sure that every note and message left is being passed along. Your generosity has been amazing.
