About Us

Bringing Glory to God Through the Helping of People

Crossroads Mission Avenue was established in 1983 with a vision to serve the hungry and needy as they sought assistance.

What started out as a soup kitchen serving one meal a day with only one bed, has evolved into a state-of-the-art facility providing unparalleled services in central Nebraska.

Our goals include providing food, shelter, clothing, and physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and vocational support to the homeless, as well as providing indigent services for those who are needy.

We offer so much more than a hot meal and a warm bed. Our 4-Phase Recovery Program and Personalized Case Management is what sets us apart, and equips program participants for successful living after their time at Crossroads!

Our Core Values are to strive to be Christ-centered in all we do, to care for those in need in Central Nebraska, to involve the communities in Christian ministry, to demonstrate Christ’s love through our actions and in truth, and to establish relationships through integrity and respect.

Jordan’s Story
“What Crossroads has given me is pretty much a new life.”
Jordan came to Crossroads from a broken family. His mom raised all six children alone, and drank quite heavily. As an adult, Jordan followed this example of alcohol abuse, and found himself homeless and without basic life skills. “What Crossroads has given me is pretty much a new life,” states Jordan. At Crossroads Mission Avenue, Jordan met the Lord, learned how to budget money and become a productive member of society. Jordan sums up his feelings by saying, “Crossroads is a family to me, and they will always have a part of my heart.”
