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
