THE CORNERSTONE PROJECT
The Cornerstone Project Capital Campaign is a five-phase vision that creates an opportunity to enhance City Mission's ministry of transforming lives. Psalm 118, referring to Jesus, teaches that, “the stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.” This is the foundation for our belief that those who have struggled in life can become the cornerstones of a stronger community because of Christ.
TOGETHER, we can equip the Mission to continue our ministries and directly transform lives. Whether it is the Men's Shelter, Family Life Center, or Dining Center, your donation will impact the lives of individuals. It can make the difference between poverty and sustainability and between a life of despair and one of new direction and purpose.
TOGETHER, we can help people begin to dream again and give them the resources needed to become cornerstones for their families and their communities. By God’s grace and working together, we are changing lives, training leaders, and building community.
THE CORNERSTONE PROJECT VISION
SCHENECTADY WORKS HEADQUARTERS
We're excited about the progress being made in our Schenectady Works program and are passionate about equipping individuals to become leaders at home, at work, and in the community.
FAMILY LIFE CENTER RENOVATIONS
We desire to make needed improvements to this facility to continue to make the Family Life Center (FLC) an environment of safety, beauty, and transformation in our residents’ lives.
TRANSITIONAL HOUSING: PART 1
Our transitional housing program helps hard-working individuals have access to affordable housing and on-going support as they build a better future for themselves and their families, becoming community leaders.
The Cornerstone Project will enable us to add program space and make renovations on our Main Campus so that we can continue to meet the needs of those we serve.
TRANSITIONAL HOUSING: PART 2
Part Two would further our transitional housing efforts and help individuals as they work toward economic stability. This building would also provide additional ministry space for City Mission programs.
