TOGETHER WE’RE HELPING MEN & WOMEN THRIVE
Crossroads Community Ministries
Crossroads Community Ministries seeks to provide access to resources that empower people experiencing homelessness to progress on the road toward economic and personal stability
For over 20 years, Crossroads Community Ministries has been a leading provider of supportive services for those experiencing homelessness in our community. Last year, the staff and dedicated volunteers served over 4,200 men, women and children, primarily through our Renewal Project which consists of stabilization and job readiness training programs.
Stay connected with us to see how we’re serving those in need.
In 2016, there was a total homeless population in Atlanta of 4,063, which is a 6% decrease from 2015. And, it is noteworthy that Crossroad served 4,135 men, women and children experiencing homelessness in 2016.
Although there is a continued decline in homelessness in Atlanta, Crossroads will not be complacent. We continue to develop new programs to make homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring in Atlanta.
The broader homeless population faces a wide variety of barriers to employment, including the experience of homelessness itself, plus other obstacles such as lack of experience, physical or mental health barriers, and challenges related to re-entry from incarceration or hospitalization. At Crossroads, we attempt to help people overcome these barriers through our Renewal Project and Crossroads Connect by providing stabilization and job readiness training services that will increase their opportunity to gain meaningful employment and safe, stable housing.
