Neighbors Ministry is a Crosswind outreach with an 'on-campus' presence in low-income government subsidized apartment complexes in the community. Our volunteers make and maintain relationships with marginalized families and provide ongoing friendship and care. We have regular meetings, host special events and make regular visits to families assisting them in many ways. We basically help them do "life".
Volunteering or giving to our Neighbors Program will allow Crosswind to:
- Help marginalized and hurting people meet practical needs through relationship-based care.
- Assist with payment for a medical clinic visit.
- Assist with payment for non-narcotic generic prescriptions.
- Provide access to professional counseling services.
- Help transport people to and from the doctor visits or job interviews.
- Occasional purchase/delivery of emergency supplies (usually toiletries, etc.)
- Occasional purchase/delivery of bed or small furnishings.
- Occasional purchase/delivery of emergency food and clothing (thrift style).
- Occasional emergency bill pay.
- Leading/purchasing spiritual, parenting and financial class curriculum.
Presently Crosswind volunteers have adopted five complexes consisting of approximately 350 families.
