Housing Solutions & Development    Philip Posey, Director


Cornerstone has been helping men, women, and families find stability in their lives by meeting their housing needs since 1994. Eliminating housing barriers allows all people the opportunity to move forward and become more stable and productive members of our community. Our housing efforts focus on the individual that may be facing challenges with housing solutions. Our goal is to move individuals from insecurity in housing to a variety of permanent solutions including home ownership. Our goal is not to transition those in need into a living space, but to work with them toward their long term goals for life and housing desires. Over 25 properties have been made available since 2014 for affordable ownership and many of them now owned by individuals and families who saw homeownership as an unreachable dream.

Our current housing division includes 3 distinct avenues to sustained living. For men, the New Life Center in the up and coming Fairmount Historic District offers housing for men who have faced homelessness. Women who are being released from incarceration can become part of the Promise House, a place that provides safe shelter while working toward building a new life based upon Christian principals. Thirdly, we work to provide affordable homeownership to individuals and families who are ready and willing to achieve this goal. Our homeownership program has included both new and remodeled single family homes and condominiums. The vision of housing services with Cornerstone is not simply to provide long term shelter, but to work with people to understand and help them reach their ideal housing situation.

Promise House Coyletta Govan, Coordinator 

A place for women to live and learn to thrive after incarceration, Promise House is a loving home environment and community that builds on the belief that all women can be empowered to live strong and independent lives. Personal mentoring that residents receive often follows them after they move on from the house. Women are encouraged and assisted on how to live a life that is sustainable by working toward personal goals in finance, housing, relationships, and spirituality. Promise House is located in a quiet, safe, and friendly neighborhood minutes from downtown Fort Worth.
