About

TCBC provides emergency housing, basic needs, and resources for our Beaver County brothers and sisters who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

The Cornerstone of Beaver County (TCBC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides and coordinates local housing resources and human services to prevent and end homelessness.

Homelessness is a complex issue. And all too often, the road to solutions is complicated and inefficient.

Here at TCBC, we provide a solutions model that is unified and simplified.

Our programs integrate housing and a variety of related services all under one roof with a comprehensive network of human services partners.

Through direct programs, coordination of local housing resources, and referrals to our community partners, we help clients secure housing and connect with immediate and ongoing resources to address the challenges that threaten their well-being.

As part of our commitment to our clients and community, we also work to foster a deeper and more realistic understanding of the issue of homelessness.

Ultimately, we provide our clients with a pathway home to a place they can fully and fearlessly rely on for safety, stability, and peace of mind. A home empowers them to set their sights on a new and hopeful vision, and start transforming their lives.
