Purpose:
Crosswalk provides the basic necessities for the teens who are homeless or in crisis situations.  We provide lifesaving services to at-risk homeless and troubled street kids (13-18).  We provide a safe place for teenagers to sleep, eat, go to school, and receive many other services. 

A team of professionals teach them life skills, help them graduate from high school, give them mental health counseling, and ultimately, seeks to help them transition into successful, healthy adults. 

Crosswalk serves 50-60 teens/day, and has operated over 20 years.
