The founders of Serving at the Crossroads knew the non-profit model of swooping into an underserved area and “fixing” everything wouldn’t work for long-term sustainability and improving quality of life. Therefore, to enable local people to help themselves, we embraced the philosophy of aid, inform, and empower as our model.
