I’ve been volunteering at crossroads for about 23 years. I do at least one soup kitchen per year with Comerica Bank. Generally everyone who comes to crossroads with us loves volunteering there and wants to come back and help support this great charity. They do such great work to help support with not a handout but a handup to those in need.
I am also a past board President.

I have been volunteering with Crossroads for close about 20 years. Crossroads provides a Sunday Soup Kitchen in downtown Detroit on W Grand Blvd. During the week, Crossroads provides counseling services to help our client solve a multitude of problems that they deal with on a regular basis. We try to help solve the emergency. Then we try to help improve the overall situation. We can help in various ways with food, clothing, job training, counseling and other emergency assistance. Crossroads provides important services to our Detroit residents.

This company is very discriminative when it comes to getting employment. They will offer you a position to answer phones when you have experience with a degree to match. Then the individual who still in school a position to be a counselor because their younger.

My late husband was an Episcopal priest whose life had one singular focus: to make the world a better place for everyone. To him, the mission of Crossroads embodied that goal. After he retired from parish work, he became a volunteer counselor, working directly with clients. His experiences led him to believe that Crossroads is the purest form of church, where the teachings of Jesus are lived every day. I couldn’t agree more.

I have worked a soup kitchen with Crossroads for the last three years. They recruited local chefs to make the lunch. The food was delicious and plentiful. The Crossroads staff is tuned into the needs of the community they serve and extremely thoughtful and caring. I feel privileged to volunteer with them.

I helped to serve lunch in soup kitchen on West Grand Blvd in Detroit in September. It gave me a great feeling of accomplishment helping to serve some that were less fortunate than myself. I met and talked with some very interesting and intelligent people. Serving others helps to give one a true and real perspective of life.

My experience at Crossroads as a volunteer crisis counselor has been beyond my expectations. The fulfillment I get from helping someone genuinely in desperate need, with nowhere to turn or none to turn to, is beyond humbling and gratifying. I honestly feel blessed to be able to help out there in any way I can.

I have not worked with a Non-profit who cares so much for their clients as Crossroads of Michigan. Each staff member and volunteer goes above and beyond their role to make sure their clients are accommodated for. Crossroads of Michigan deserves extraordinary recognition.

Grossroads is doing what many nonprofits "wish" could happen.
The tightly run support programs reach many different levels of need through their gifted and committed volunteer base. Their volunteers come from a wide socioeconomic
swath and provide "hands on and hand up" support to needy quests.
This can range from excellent meal offerings to personal recovery of I.D.
cards, employment assistance to cooking and nutrition classes. The goal is teaching how to "fish" and become independent. From the excellent physical facility to the gifted empathic staff, they "walk they talk"
