The Crossroads Ministries facility is a place of refuge in the storm where women can put the pieces of their lives back together. It is a two phase operation. We get the chance to serve in the first phase of the program in two different ways. The first is where women come in from prisons, treatment centers, or abusive situations where they find a safe and positive environment for up to 120 days.
1. Completion of building addition: This new room that is being added on to the back of the Phase 1 house will be a safe place for: Learning, Church, Fellowship, Family visits..etc. The frame and insulation have already been completed, the current needs: Shiplap, paint, hardware installation, and more.
2. Patio / Meditation Area: Beside the building addition there is an old patio. When members from the community visit to share, teach, and pray with these women, this is typically where we go: into nature, into the outdoors to be in a distraction free. We want to dedicate some time to Paint, build, and clear out this area to make it feel like home.
