Wrapped In Courage
Shelters for abused women across Ontario are calling on all Ontarians to show abused women and their children that they are not alone by purchasing and wearing a purple scarf during November’s Woman Abuse Awareness Month for the Wrapped in Courage Campaign.
By purchasing a scarf you will not only be providing financial support to Cornerstone but showing women and children in our community that you stand with them and that you support them. It’s a symbol of courage and a symbol of strength.
Over the course of one year Cornerstone provides more than 6,000 nights of shelter for women, children, and youth impacted by domestic violence. The number of women and children needing shelter is growing every year and Cornerstone relies on the support of the community to keep providing the programs and services to these individuals in our community.

SHARING A STORY OF COURAGE
Cornerstone has launched an online Courage campaign. We are asking participants to share a story about when they have felt courageous, or when they have admired courage in others; whether it was trying something new, standing up for what is right, or presenting in front of a crowd, no act of courage is too small. Join the conversation by sharing your story on Facebook using the hashtag #CornerstoneCourage
