Mission: Crossway Community, Inc. is a center for innovative, community-based anti-poverty solutions in the greater Washington, DC area. We promote community, creativity and learning for all families. Our evidence-based programs provide economically disadvantaged, single mothers the educational tools they need to build the social and financial networks that break the cycle of generational poverty.

Parents report that 90% of the children who have attended our Montessori education program are above grade level in school and 70% of our adult students are currently enrolled in post-secondary education programs
Target demographics: Economically disadvantaged women in the Washington DC metro area with children under the age of 6.
Professional with expertise in this field
As a parent of Montessori students and an architect that works directly with educational non-profits in this region, I have been singularly impressed by unique educational and social model created by CrossWay Community. They have identified critical components of a thriving social network and translated that into a vibrant community that serves a diverse range of families, as well as residents of its immediate neighborhood.
