Ways to help

  • HELP do the work of helping children.


    • Revenue is raised here in multiple important ways: 
    • Make a monetary donation! Your generous support allows our highly trained teachers and therapists to provide the individualized attention each child needs to succeed in school, in their homes and community. Every cent is really felt here and helps to provide applied behavior analysis (ABA) services to a population with a huge need.  Financial donors help sustain critical the essential educational and therapeutic programs that allow students to make progress.
    • Matching programs are offered by many local businesses to provide support to non-profit organizations. Please check with your employer to see if they might match your donation.  COMPANIES who match their employees’ donations.
    • Legacies and bequests are a special way to honor a loved one and celebrate a life in the difficult face of a loss. Please let us know if you are designating donations to Crossroads in memory of your beloved, or including Crossroads in your will.
    • Give an In Kind donation from our WISH LIST.
    • Fundraising EVENTS and ACTIVITIES are ongoing. We’d love for you to join us at any and all! 
  • Why donations are important here.
    • As a nonprofit, Crossroads cannot function without help from our community. 
    • While we do receive some funding from tuition payments, the services our children need are highly individualized making them more costly than traditional special education services, leaving a large gap between tuition income and actual expenses.
    • To serve students and their families, we need ongoing help from our community.  
    • All donations directly serve the children and families of Crossroads Center for Children. 
    • Your gift is tax deductible! Since Crossroads Center for Children is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization, donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the law.


    We are indebted to our GRANTORS for the funding that allows us to really reach for the stars with our students!
