A Place Of Hope Since 1963

Cross-Lines Community Outreach has been helping our community since 1963.  Our mission: Provide people affected by poverty with basic services and opportunities that encourage self-confidence and self-sufficiency.  Please browse our website and visit the Contact Us page if you have any questions.  Thank you for visiting our website!

Hope for a Better Tomorrow is more than just a building project.  It is about building access to services for clients and volunteers, through a consolidation of locations to a new building on our main campus.  This will allow us to serve our community in a more efficient and client friendly way, and enhance capacity for clients, staff and volunteers to work together in the fight against poverty.

We would like to say THANK YOU to those who have supported our Hope For A Better Tomorrow Capital Campaign so far, and share some exciting news. Our campaign goal is $2,300,000, and we are happy to say that we have raised over $2,046,932.39 to date!

While we have made great strides towards our goal, we still have a long way to go. Cross-Lines has received two challenge grants from the Mabee Foundation for $250,000 and from the Hall Family Foundation for $250,000. In order for Cross-Lines to receive these grants totaling $500,000, we must raise an additional $250,000 by June 30, 2015.

In an effort to continue to provide quality services to our clients and increase our accessibility to the community and to our volunteers, Cross-Lines identified the need for a new building to house our Commodities program for seniors, an expanded Food Pantry, and our community Thrift Store. We need your help to meet our goal for this important expansion. Please contact Susila Jones at (913) 281-3388 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
