There are also 3 live-in assistants who live along-side the Core Members at Charbonneau, creating mutual and supportive relationships.

Cornerstone House was founded in 2008 and is distinguished–looking home on the corner of Dunsmure Rd. and Fairholt Rd. South, with a fieldstone foundation—giving it its unique name. Four Core Members and 3 live-in assistants share life and create home together at Cornerstone House.

The Ladies Bungalow is connected to Cornerstone House and was also founded in 2008. It is home to three women who are part of our SIL (Supported Independent Living) program, one whom is a founding Core Member. The Bungalow also houses our Prayer Space, where the community meets for Common Worship on a bi-weekly basis.

In our homes, chores and responsibilities are shared. Outside of the home, Core Members attend a variety of programs, including day programs, life skills programs, supported employment, and leisure programs. Weekends and evenings are times for outings, recreation and relaxation.
