Crossroads works collaboratively with a number of community groups including a strong partnership with Project Community Connections, Inc. (PCCI) which shares the primary goal of rehousing people experiencing homelessness.
In the month of August, Crossroads kicked off its’ first Food Service Training Course or Cooking with Crossroads, for which we enrolled 5 participants. The course included public health safety and regulations, cutting techniques, menu development, hands-on-meal preparation, kitchen etiquette, and ServSafe training and testing, just to name a few.
Without Crossroads people who are homeless wouldn’t get any help or have a place to go where they are treated with dignity, respect, and kindness. I know because I have been there in my life where I was homeless, needed help and sometimes felt mistreated.
Thanks to the Citizens of Georgia Power, the General Counsel department squared off against the Accounting, Finance and Treasury team to see who could prepare 400 sandwiches the fastest for Crossroads.
What an exciting time to be part of the life-giving ministry taking place here at Crossroads! Our work on behalf of those experiencing homelessness in Atlanta has never been more effective or more in demand.
