How can we help you? 

Crossroads has been in the Pella community for over 36 years asking this question to thousands of individuals each year. Crossroads can provide help in a variety of ways, but most importantly it is a place to start. If there are mental health, employment, family or conflict issues, we will develop a plan.

Review the information located on this page and if you or someone you know needs assistance,
call Crossroads at 641-628-1212!

Crossroads relies on the generous donations of supporters to continue providing programs to uplift the community.  Please consider donating to Crossroads of Pella.

Financial AssistanceFinancial Assistance

Crossroads of Pella provides financial assistance to those in need. Families without basic utilities or housing are a priority. Families who chronically are unable to meet their bills will be referred for counseling in financial management. Upon initial request for funds, individuals are required to fill out a request form. This allows Crossroads staff the opportunity to inform families of programs in place to help low income families. Crossroads cannot guarantee assistance, but each request will be given thoughtful consideration. Call us at (641) 628-1212 or visit our office if you are in need of assistance. Please bring invoice for verification.
