Cornerstone Landing Youth Services works toward the prevention of homelessness by providing direct support and/or financial assisstance to low income, at-risk youth over the age of sixteen to prevent them from becoming homeless.

Cornerstone Landing Youth Services develops community partnerships to address the issue of youth homelessness. 

Client referrals will be assessed by the Housing Case Worker and, if accepted into the program, clients will be registered and will follow the program expectations. 

The Housing Support Workers meet with idenified youth to ascertain the risks being faced that may result in homelessness. 

The Housing Case Worker will meet with the youth on a regular basis to review their on-going needs and to assess further supports that may be needed.

Programs

Financial Assistance
Depending on the needs, financial assistance of up to $200 per month will be provided in the form of rent supplements or gift certificates for basic needs such as food, hygiene supplies and clothing. 

Transitional Housing
Youth can be selescted to stay in our residential transitional home, based on their need of a safe, stable,  and supportive  environment. Our transitional housing program includes a live-in adult to offer support, as well as regular checkins and support offered by our Housing Case Workers. The program offers rent-geared-to-income for youth, in a large 4 bedroom home in Smiths Falls, Ontario.
