NEWS UPDATE as of October 16, 2018:

The Fall 2018 Golf Tournament concluded yesterday with upwards to 100 guys (and gals) showing up to play a round of golf and show their support for Crossroads at Park Place. Much fun was had on and off the beautiful Bay Oaks Country Club golf course. After the game, we all retired to a hot meal in the Ball Room and enjoyed good company. Many thanks to all who participated in the game and the silent auction and to those who came just for lunch and the fellowship of one another. Go here for photos taken during the event. See you next year!

NEWS UPDATE as of August 12, 2018:
Members of the Clear Lake United Methodist Church and others demonstrated heart-felt compassion for our clients the past three weeks by piling the sanctuary high with pants, belts, sneakers and shorts. Over 600 items were counted. Pastor Charles Anderson led the way by urging everyone to participate because our stocks have been running low and the weather is especially hot. Everyone at Crossroads is grateful for the support shown to our clients and pray to the Lord that this help will continue throughout the year. Thanks to all who contributed. May God bless you abundantly.
