As services changed...
When orphanages in the eastern United States were crowded and children needed a home, we opened our doors to them.
When children were affected by family changes during the Great Depression, we opened our doors to them.
When young unwed mothers needed a caring place to go to have their babies, we opened our doors to them.
When troubled children needed professional residential care, we opened our doors to them.
When the need for outpatient and community wraparound services for children and families grew, we opened our doors to them and traveled to their doors!
Since 1883, we have been opening doors and our hearts to children and families.
Thanks for helping us keep doors open and supporting us
as we create promising futures for children—whatever it takes!
We need you to help open doors right now! The gap between the percentage of our budget that is funded by fees and reimbursements for services versus the percentage Crossroad funds via fundraising and investments is growing. We are experiencing cuts in per diem rates even though costs are rising. We are experiencing lower funding from businesses and grants. At the same time, because of problems in the economy, loss of employment and other family-related issues, child abuse and neglect is actually on the rise. You have no doubt heard similar laments from other not-for-profit organizations. It is a reality. Please rest assured we are doing everything we can to adjust to these challenges.
You are vital to these children.
We encourage you to consider a thoughtful gift to help our kids. If you can make a gift to help – we need you!
If you can make a larger than usual gift to help make up for those who can’t due to changes in their life circumstances – thank you! If you can make a major gift this year to help make up major funding gaps – bless you!
And remember – your donations may be given as an honorarium or memorial. On behalf of these hurting children, thanks for caring about them enough to help create promising futures for them.
