Connecting people with the support they need

Restoring dignity and hope

Helping people grow to reach their full potential

Connect Restore Grow…

For more than 30 years, Cornerstone Contact Centre has been providing support for people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage in Dandenong. We work alongside those who are in need of a safe place to call home. Through providing a place of hospitality, belonging and engagement Cornerstone helps people address issues such as family violence, drug addiction, homelessness, poverty, mental health and social isolation.

For many who come from challenging backgrounds, Cornerstone is a source of dignity and hope, a place where people can flourish and feel safe. Our core programs include community meals, emergency relief and a drop-in centre where marginalised people can connect and experience a sense of belonging.

As the cost of living increases, more local families in Greater Dandenong are experiencing hardship; along with providing material aid, we aim to connect people with pathways out of disadvantage.
