Brighter smiles in Hastings thanks to Central Community College Dental Hygiene Program!

We definitely will have brighter smiles here at the Hastings Shelter, after a large donation of toothpaste to Crossroads Mission Avenue by the Central Community College Dental Hygiene Program!

It’s progress!!

Crossroads Mission Avenue’s transitional housing in Grand Island is getting a facelift!
