It’s rare that an organization of such high value, execution and passion are all seen in the same place. Relentless in its pursue of current and time tested ways to build self sustaining life skills. A model non-organization.

One of the things that stands out to me is Crossway's holistic approach to changing the lives of mothers enrolled in the Family Leadership School. From what I learned during interviews, Crossway doesn't babysit mothers in the FLS. They won't hold your hand. Don't get me wrong, the mothers have a very supportive environment, but they are responsible for their own success--and they have the tools to guide them along the pathway to success. I am very impressed with the whole person/whole family/whole community approach that is at the core of Crossway's mission.

an indirect fashion. One FLS student I interviewed has a touching story. I was able to hear how she is taking advantage of the opportunities the program provides, primarily to better her child's future.

My children both attended Crossway Montessori.
I would like to highlight the standard of education Crossway Montessori provides for all children enrolled in the school regarding of their socio-economic background.
The Students in the Family Leadership School are working on achieving
success for themselves and their children. Over the past 6 years I have witnessed wonderful changes in the life of those families.

Crossway Community serves mothers and childen in a unique way by providing life skills classes, stable housing, a Montessori School year-round program and positive contact with other parents (from the Montessori school) who support Crossway's mission and can serve as mentors. It is a special place that is always striving to provide the best outcomes for the families it serves.

I support Crossway as a retired early childhood specialist. Crossway understands that working with children means working with parents, the whole, the family. To achieve long term success, change must take place through learning and experiencing the lessons taught. This happens at Crossway. Cheers to a quality program.

I would like to see them have more funding to expand and enhance their programs. They have developed an effective concept that should be encouraged

I have so much respect for the work Crossway Community does - so many programs work with small children in disadvantaged circumstances but neglect the parents. By working closely with the mothers as well, Crossway Community gives the children a lifeline within their own families. The Family Leadership School is a wonderful innovation with proven results - local governments and other child-centered non-profits should really take a look at this model. Very impressive.

Having been a staff member at Crossway many years ago, I have been impressed and inspired by the organization's development . By sticking to a set of core priniciples and a strong mission, and by continuously committing to excellence, Crossway has realized a vision that makes a difference in the lives of families every day. I believe that Crossway is on the cutting edge of education/family and community development because of its ability to draw upon the strengths of each and every partner -- and to be driven by research and best practices. It is an honor to have been connected with Crossway Community.

The Great!

Being inspired by the women who have kept Crossway going and growing over the years, and by those who have participated in its programs.

Crossway Community really understands how working with young children, especially those from poor families, can make a difference. It is uplifting to see their school and know that the future for these children may be different than what they might have experienced.
