Women and Children Program

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.
