At The Crossroads
September 4, 2008
Rob Gitin, the director of At the Crossroads, has pulled off something truly remarkable in this organization. ATC was founded on the principle that relationships can have a transformative effect when they are formed with “respect, thoughtfulness, transparency, and optimism.” And, even as it has grown, ATC has never strayed from these simple, yet powerful roots. What sets ATC apart from other non-profits is that fact that they are genuinely committed to meeting people wherever they are at – both physically and psychologically. They offer no pre-determined goals for their clients and do not place conditions on their relationship with ATC. Through this non-judgmental approach, ATC elicits positive change in the lives of homeless youth that other programs have failed to reach. I am continually amazed by the plethora of success stories ATC has helped create over the past 10 years. I feel very blessed to have found ATC as a volunteer. They have improved the lives of countless young people in our community and stand as one of the select non profits in San Francisco that anyone could feel very proud to support.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the incredibly positive influence ATC has had on the youth it serves. They have reached many young adults that most people would have written off as "unreachable."
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Rob, and the rest of the staff, always take the time to tell their volunteers exactly how much their contributions mean to the organization. I really appreciate being so appreciated!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
some of the most genuine, committed, and just plain cool people I have ever met.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & I feel lucky to have helped out at several prep nights and also at the amazing 10 year anniversary party.
