Volunteer Opportunities

Cornerstone Creek welcomed its first tenants in
January of 2017

…and all 45 units were quickly filled. The state-of-the-art building is the culmination of 10 years of planning, research, fundraising and dedication. It’s the only place of its kind in the Twin Cities offering affordable, independent apartment living along with progressive amenities at no charge to the tenants or their families.

“I like seeing friends here and having people around,” Rebecca F.
