Be a Part of the Solution – Donate to Our Renovation Campaign and Make a Difference in Local Kids’ Lives

Since our founding almost 45 years ago, Youth Crossroads has launched its first capital campaign, BUILD  FUTURE  SUCCESS, to create a permanent home. The campaign seeks to raise $300,000 to renovate a drab warehouse into a welcoming community hub that will serve local youth for years to come.

You can partner with us to change lives. The campaign is about more than a building. Together, we are…

  • building hope.
  • building opportunities.
  • building resiliency.
  • building young leaders.
  • building community.

You’re invited to participate in this project by donating your most generous gift. Just click the link below to see the various giving levels. All donors will be recognized in our annual report.

For 45 years Youth Crossroads, Inc. has provided no-cost counseling services to local young people and their families, and, more recently, youth leadership development programs and activities.  As a small non-profit organization, monetary donations from individuals, businesses, civic groups, and churches are an integral part of our operational budget. Your donations are put to good use immediately, helping local youth get the caring, professional guidance and support they desperately need.

As one of our teen leaders put it so well:

“Youth Crossroads has truly changed my life. I feel like I am part of something bigger in this world.  Being able to go to a place where I can feel accepted for who I am is a wonderful thing…  Youth Crossroads is a non-profit organization, yet it manages to continuously give to the community. The question of whether Youth Crossroads should receive donations isn’t a matter of ‘if’ but of ‘when’! How else would such an amazing program continue the amazing feats it is currently achieving?”                                                                                                  Michael R.

Make a donation today via our secure online service. We hope you’ll consider an automatic recurring donation, which helps us make activities available to more youth and gives us the ability to plan new programs. Whether it’s once a month, once a quarter or once a year, every gift is greatly appreciated. No amount is too small!

Through your generosity, we will be able to keep our youth programs free to the youth we serve in our surrounding communities. Thanks so much!
