City Crossroads works directly with residents in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood, where our center is located. We provide after-school programming, enrichment services, and a safe haven for multi-ethnic, low-income families. For 30 years our organization has helped children and teens reach their full potential. Our dedicated staff of volunteers works in partnership with the local church to provide a consistent and stable message of love and hope.
In the fall of 1984 City Crossroads was born out of necessity. Pastor Tim Doramus had a passion to see a safe and loving place for children and teens to escape the turmoil of sixth street and meet Jesus. The programs then and now reflect the same simple goals, providing a place to hold onto childhood amongst a myriad of adult issues, providing for immediate needs, and pointing toward the ultimate source of hope, Jesus Christ.
Our programs are designed to meet the most immediate needs of the community. Our neighborhood has changed a lot in the last three decades and our programs have changed with them. Currently we are working in close partnership with other neighborhood services to provide wrap-around care. Our non-traditional program hours mean that children recieve a healthy dinner and enrichment services well into the evening hours when some caregivers are still at work and when some children simply have no other place to go.
