Get a team, donate and join Owensboro Daviess County Ministerial Association in the CROP Walk to fight hunger in our community. It is Sunday, September 17, starting at 2pm. Walk will begin at the GRADD parking lot at 300 GRADD Way. Walkers will walk the 3 mile West Trail of the Greenbelt from GRADD to West Parrish Ave. and back. This is the distance millions of people worldwide have to walk to bring clean water to their communities. Proceeds raised will go to Crossroads. We will have a water/cooling station set on the walk. It's going to be a beautiful day... come support a great cause!

Imagine you or your child sleeping on a air mattress and having to air it up several times during the night. You can't get a good nights sleep and neither can your child, and you have a job to go to the next day and your child has to be able to concentrate and do well in school.
Over time our current mattresses are becoming worn with use from the 200+ guests that we have been housing.
Crossroads to Hope Shelter for Women and Children is in need of the following:
*twin size sheet sets
*pillows
*twin size air mattresses
*bus passes

If you would donate, please drop off at 1631 Breckenridge Street 10-4 Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Thursdays 4-6, 12-2 Mondays and Fridays.
Thank you and have a blessed day!

September 1st marks the one year anniversary opening of Crossroads to Hope Shelter for Women and Children.
In this time, 200+ women and children have been sheltered, some moved into assisted living, some into Pitino Shelter or OASIS, 2 into local pregnancy center, some home to other states, four in recovery, 12 women and children into permanent housing, 25+ on housing waiting list, 4+ gained full time employment, 23 have medical insurance, others receiving benefits and proper ID cards, and some referred to RVBH ACT program.
We have numerous volunteers that serve as companions, others that provide meals nightly, and others who have donated supplies and made monetary donations.
Thankful for the vision that was placed on Michele Ison's heart of what could be done for the women and children that needed shelter and for her fighting for what she believed and knew was needed.
We are so thankful to all of those who have supported this mission in all ways possible. We couldn't have done it without you.
This has been a long road but so worth it when we are able to see the lives that have been touched. And the blessings are so much more than you can ever imagine. We are all better people for being able to serve these women and children.
Thank you to all of you that have helped in every way possible. Blessings on you all!

Crossroads to Hope Shelter for Women and Children would like to thank everyone for all your donations. You have truly blessed us by all the giving of needed items. Where there was a storage closet with very few items in it a few days ago, is stocked with supplies we were in need of to take care of our guests.
Thank you to all and blessings on you.
Have a great day!!

When you volunteer as a companion, you get to see some just awe inspiring moments that touch you deep in your soul. A new guest coming in scared to death, her whole life has crashed around her and she has no where to turn. She wants to give up! She is welcomed by others with open arms and hugs and encouragement that things may not seem good at this moment, but it will be. Stop worrying about tomorrow, just take now and this moment... breathe, believe, it will get better and you can do this.This from our other guests and volunteers. Our guests are truly amazing and touch you straight to your heart with the compassion and love given to each other. It may just be a hug, a smile, a conversation to share her story of how she is there, sharing what clothing they have, or sharing bus tokens... but the experience is so moving!
Thankful we can be here for these women and children and these moments.
