New Fund at CFFK Will Support New Homeless Shelter

Providing shelter and support services for those experiencing homelessness, including the building of a new facility, is the goal of the new Cornerstone Resource Fund at the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys (CFFK). The new fund is established by Cornerstone Resource Alliance (CRA) and will create a permanent foundation for the wellness of homeless individuals in the Keys. CRA was founded as a nonprofit in 2020 and received the City of Key West’s contract to manage the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter (KOTS).

Contributions to the fund will support building and maintaining a brand-new facility to provide shelter and case management support services and will also support maintaining services in Key West until the new one is built. CRA expects to break ground on the new facility in late summer 2021, with completion some time in 2022.
