I have been a volunteer and donor of At the Crossroads for a few years now. I am attracted to ATC because of their impeccable mission and positive impact they have on our community. Everyday, Rob and members of ATC work hard to help homeless youths to become better citizen. As youths are the future of our society, we need to invest in improvement of their lives. I have admired ATC vigorous energy and their selflessness of help homeless youths in our community. To improve our community, we need to support organization like At the Crossroads.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways. I have read and heard stories of people whom ATC help to became hard working citizen.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing. Their commitment to better the lives of homeless is admirable.

Rob and his staff/board members have set the tone for recognizing that everyone can play a valuable role in making a difference in the lives of the youth that ATC works with. Just as they work to connect with homeless youth at their own level, they engage donors, volunteers, and other supporters at their own level as well - starting with your strengths and contributions, and building a relationship from there.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the people that I've met and the hands-on ways that I've been able to get involved.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fun, inspired, and engaged.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

leverage at least $10 million more in in-kind donations, actual dollars, and volunteer support.
