Organization Description: 

Founded in 2001, Crossroads provides crisis intervention and prevention programs for at-risk first- and second-generation immigrant teens and young adults (ages 15 to 22) from the United States, Canada, and Europe who are struggling with social, emotional, and/or educational difficulties. It operates programs in Jerusalem including, but not limited to, street outreach, a drop-in day center, therapy, a 24-hour crisis hotline, summer school, and various prevention programs.

Grant Purpose: 

To mitigate the economic hardships faced by The Foundation’s grantees in Israel, resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help them achieve long-term organizational sustainability.

We gratefully acknowledge and deeply appreciate this most significant grant award from The Jewish Foundation of Los Angeles. This extraordinary sustainability grant is pivotal toward ensuring Crossroads' financial stability as we continue responding to the escalating mental health challenges emerging from COVID-19. This grant will undoubtedly have a life-saving impact on the teens and young adults we work with.
