About Crossroads of Michigan

Location:

2424 W. Grand Blvd., Detroit, MI 48208, US

Mission Statement

We use experience, caring power, and a human-centered approach to improve the lives of people in need.

Description

Crossroads of Michigan was founded by Father James McLaren in 1971 in response to a growing number of people in the community who did not have access to the same resources and were not being treated the same as others. 52 years later this continues to be important to us and influences our approach to finding better and sustainable solutions to people living in poverty than has been available to us.

Our strength is in our experience, caring power, talent and embrace of social innovation. Our mastery is in resource distribution that is complementary to our new and unique client interventions that rely upon a relationship-oriented approach to being partners in change for those who turn to us in trust. Community resources are necessary for people in need but change occurs when people are intentionally and courageously cared for.
