About Us

Cornerstone Community Housing

Providing Hope, Help, and Home to men experiencing homelessness as we work to address needs in our community.

Who We Are

Cornerstone Community Housing (CCH) is a community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit incorporated in 1993.  CCH was the vision of Rev. Eugene Bartell and volunteers at The Supper Club, a feeding program at First United Evangelical UCC and was inspired by Earl Johnson, a guest at The Supper Club.  Earl and other guests put a face on “homeless” and raised awareness of the need for food and shelter. Realizing a need to do more than just feed people, Earl’s Place, a transitional housing program was opened in December 1997.  Earl did not live to see the results of his inspiration, but his memory lives on through the many men who are helped.

Earl’s Place is located in Baltimore City and  provides transitional housing and supportive services to 17 men at a time. Annually 30-35 men are provided housing and support to work on their goals

Our second project, Prospect Place, opened in November 2015.  Prospect Place is located in Baltimore County. Using a Housing First model we provide  permanent supportive housing to twelve men who were chronically homeless.

Mission Statement

Cornerstone Community Housing has a twofold mission. We are dedicated to helping men experiencing homelessness rebuild their lives and to changing attitudes toward homelessness through outreach and education.
