For over 16 years, Crossroads Community Services has been at the forefront of nourishing those in need and powering change in downtown Dallas. From volunteering to donations, there are many ways you can help serve our neighbors in need.

Operating under the non-profit status of First United Methodist Church of Dallas, Crossroads was developed out of the desire to better serve more low-income people in our community. In July 2015, CCS was granted their own 501c3 status, and until recently, operated on Young Street in the 2nd floor of the Stewpot building (Presbyterian Church Community Services). Now, they’re located at a standalone facility in South Dallas, expanding their abilities to support individuals and families in economic distress, and offer skills necessary for sustained economic success. While there is a small paid staff operating Crossroads, they rely on volunteer help to keep things running smoothly and make sure the maximum number of people in need get helped.

Currently, there are immediate needs for men and women to guide clients through the intake process, where demographic data and information about their health and emotional well-being is collected.  People are also needed to shop with clients in the pantry, load groceries into cars, stock shelves, sort donated groceries and more.  In 2-3 hour shifts, volunteers share their passion, talent and time beginning at 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
