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.

"Everything else kind of went away," said Brent. 

"We could sleep in peace," Diana stated. 

Watch to hear how the KCK Cold Weather Shelter provided dignified and life-saving services to those living on the street. Together with many community partners, Cross-Lines operated the shelter from December 2022-March 2023, giving hundreds of people a safe and warm place to stay.
