The staff and Women’s Association of Atlanta United FC regularly partner with Crossroads to help our neediest neighbors, upholding the team principles of we are a football club because we are more than just the team; we are the fans, we are the community, we are Atlanta, taken from the voices of our citizens. We are Atlanta United FC.
Five days a week the volunteers of Crossroads deliver mail, provide over 200 warm meals, distribute toiletry kits, build sandwiches and provide individual job training counseling. And, we truly could not have served as many clients as we did in 2017 without the help of our volunteers. As we springboard into the new year, we want to take a moment to showcase and applaud our volunteers who went above and beyond in 2017.
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.
Veterans, thank you for your service! Each day many of the people who come through the doors of Crossroads are living on the streets, or in shelters and lacking the foothold to find their place as productive citizens. The first point person for many of these guests, is Rhonda Green, a case manager at Crossroads, who manages our front desk and daily delivers an attitude of gratitude to our guests.
At Crossroads, we have adopted community, compassion, dignity and equality as our core values. And, there is no greater ambassador of the ministry we provide to the community, than the staff of Watchmen Security Services.
This is a sound I look forward to hearing every Monday morning. There’s just something about hearing the sing-song quality of Dan Carey’s invitation that signals to me that we are ready to begin another week of welcoming our neighbors.
