• Each and every day, your help is needed. 

    Like other non-profits and businesses, individuals and families, Crossroads Center for Children is already experiencing financial distress during this time of crisis due to the COVID-19 virus

    Every day the children at Crossroads Center for Children learn the skills they need to make progress and thrive in this world. Donations go to providing the very services and programs they need. This work is critical for our students and their families, not just now, but in the future. We are grateful for the wonderful donors who help us carry out this important mission.

    Currently school is closed, but we are still working hard to help our community. Operations have changed significantly for the time being and so have our revenue streams. Donations can help now more than ever before. Please consider making a gift today, to allow the important work of Crossroads to continue.
