Our Mission

The mission of Cross-Lines is to provide people in the Kansas City area affected by poverty with services and opportunities that encourage self-confidence, meet the needs of today, and provide tools for future self-sufficiency.

"I didn't know that my life could be different... My recovery has held a very strong foundation because of Cross-Lines' support. If Cross-Lines wasn't here, I know our community wouldn't be as strong as it is." -Eileen, Cross-Lines local community member.

"Cross-Lines is a blessing to people from all walks of life... They treat everybody with respect and kindness" -James, Volunteer
