Crossroads Community Ministries began in the St. Luke’s parish hall in 1973 with a parishioner’s simple act of offering her sandwich to a hungry visitor. From that initial act of kindness grew the St. Luke’s Soup Kitchen, which eventually expanded to become Crossroads Community Ministries, now serving as one of the primary “first stops” for Atlanta’s homeless. Still located on the St. Luke’s campus, CCM provides 73,000 weekday meals a year, operates a mailroom, and provides disability services and case management for its “guests” (the term used for the people served). CCM focuses on the newly homeless with an emphasis on providing transitional support services to help individuals and families become self-sufficient.
