Our focus for this project is to improve and refresh some of our grant language. We are looking for support for a staff member who is new to grant writing and hope to work with someone who has grant writing experience and a good track record with writing successful grants. We would love to get an outside perspective on how we currently tell our story.
This project will help serve as a professional development opportunity for our staff member who is taking on more responsibilities with ATC's grant program and looking to build storytelling and grant writing skills. After almost 23 years and many years of successful fundraising, ATC is looking to expand our program and find new foundation partners. It will be beneficial for us to hear other ways we can successfully tell our story and describe our impact.
The mission of At The Crossroads is to reach out to homeless youth and young adults at their point of need, and work with them to build healthy and fulfilling lives.
Our innovative model focuses on young people who do not access traditional services and are disconnected from any type of consistent support. We work with young people who others have given up on, who would not get help without us. We remove common barriers to service by bringing our counselors onto the streets, and shaping our support services around the needs of each individual client. Our goal is to help our clients build outstanding lives, not just lives of subsistence.
We accomplish our mission through a combination of nighttime street outreach and one-on-one counseling, and collaboration with other service providers. We walk the streets of the Mission and Downtown San Francisco at nighttime, bringing help to our clients, rather than making them come to us. We help our clients with anything and everything they need, providing unconditional support for as long as they need to build the lives they want. We partner and advocate to make sure that there is an accessible, culturally competent continuum of care that will provide our clients with the opportunities to realize their dreams.
