ABOUT US

Who We Are

Crossroads Alliance & Ministries is a faith-based, non-profit organization empowering individuals, churches, and organizations to positively impact the lives of people in need with essentials as water, food, and medical supplies.

Our Mission

Crossroads Alliance & Ministries is committed to changing lives through compassion for people in need. We accomplish this goal by life-sustaining food, water, and Christian spirituality. 

At Crossroads, we are the connection between the “goods” that people need and the people that need the goods.

With decades of experience, Crossroads Alliance and Ministries is a non-profit organization dedicated to responding to victims of disastrous and chaotic conditions around the world.

In areas of poverty and need, the CAM team provides assistance to individuals, families, and communities by shipping food, supplements, medicines, medical equipment, school supplies, and other essential items. Though we spend aid to many areas our primary focus is on the needs of children.

The strength of our small team allows us to help the world in a big way.
