Mission: Provide people affected by poverty with basic services and opportunities that encourage self-confidence and self-sufficiency. Over the past 45-plus years, Cross-Lines has eased the sting of poverty for thousands of people and helped them return to a life of self-sufficiency. They come from all walks of life. Some are well educated. some are not. Some are homeless. Some are not. Some are between jobs, while others have disabilities that contribute to their lack of employment. They are men, women and families who have one thing in common: They need help and they need hope. Cross-Lines'' services and programs assist an individual or family as they "get over the hump" and move forward with their lives.
Hunger Relief Programs include hot breakfast and lunch served daily at our Community Annex; sack lunch program for the working poor, Food Pantry, Community Garden and Commodities.

Reviews for Cross-Lines Community Outreach Fka Cross-Lines Cooperative Council
I have been associated with Cross-Lines for over 25 years,however I joined the board three years ago. The organization serves such a valuable role in providing help to the poor in Wandotte County. A variety of services are provided from emergency rent/utility assistance to commodity assistance to the elderly to a thrift store. Since the organization has been around nearly forty years, its success rests on the shoulders of the many who have come before. I am especially pleased with Cross-Lines' efforts to provide programic assistance while maintaining the client's dignity. I am proud that our organization works hard to maintain "best practices" while providing services with a low overhead. I am proud to recommend Cross-Lines as a "GREAT" Non-Profit.
