This rating was published 12/01/2020 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

The Crossroads Center was established in 1983 with a vision to serve the hungry and needy as they sought assistance. What started out as a soup kitchen serving one meal a day with only one bed, has evolved into a state-of-the-art facility providing unparalleled services in Central Nebraska. We offer so much more than a hot meal and a warm bed. We offer a Christ-centered, 4-Phase Recovery program to homeless men, women and families. We provide food, shelter and clothing to our guests while they are completing our 4-Phase Recovery program. We provided 143,907 meals in 2020, to our needy neighbors in the Hastings, Kearney and Grand Island communities.

2008-09 09/20/2011 --Donor Advisory

Prior to 9/1/2016, Charity Navigator issued Advisories under the name CN Watchlist and Donor Advisory. For more information on the CN Advisory system click here. This charity was issued a DA.

This donor advisory was published on Tuesday, September 20, 2011

In accordance with our policy for removing Donor Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Donor Advisory for Crossroads Center on November 6, 2012 because the Donor Advisory had been in place for more than a year (since September 20, 2011) and because the issues that prompted the Donor Advisory have been resolved. Specifically:

  • The charity's FY 2011 Form 990 reported fundraising expenses.

Charity Navigator had published a Donor Advisory for this charity because we became aware of the following information in connection with this charity: 

  • Crossroads Center historically reported fundraising expenses on their Forms 990. But its FYE 2010 listed no fundraising expenses. Based on our experience, charities only  rarely are able to raise substantial sums of money without incurring any associated fundraising costs. We had reached out to Crossroads Center for clarification, but we did not receive an adequate explanation. We were therefore unable to evaluate Crossroads Center and thus issued a Donor Advisory.
