Helping renters of affordable housing achieve better lives for themselves and their families

What we do

Cornerstone Renter Equity was founded in 2001 with the goal of helping low-income families reach long-term financial stability. Today, Cornerstone is the only organization of its kind in Cincinnati, providing affordable housing and a Renter Equity Club that enables families to earn money, build assets, and become leaders in their community.

  • Matched savings plans to support the purchase of a home or vehicle, grow or start a business, pursue education, or build savings
