Sky and Kelsi’s Story – Kelsi says if it weren’t for Crossroads, she’d no longer have a brother!

Sky was ruining his life, his health and his relationships with his drinking. His sister, Kelsi, had seen it all as a probation officer and knew a little something about caring for a person without enabling their bad habits. “I did the hard love thing, “she says. “Not giving him money, not letting him stay at my place … I totally thought I would be burying him.” Sky’s drinking had resulted in five arrests, contributed to the loss of his marriage, and ultimately led to homelessness. Coming to Crossroads Mission Avenue, Sky was able to quit drinking … and soon was in a leadership position, helping men on probation and parole to get back on their feet. The brother and sister care for each other very much – Sky says if it weren’t for Kelsi, he’d have no relationship with his family. Kelsi says if it weren’t for Crossroads, she wouldn’t have a brother anymore. “I believe they saved my brother’s life,” she says.
