Crossroads United Way, serving Elkhart, LaGrange & Noble Counties unequivocally denounces racism and ethnic discrimination. We strive to be a model of diversity and inclusion. Our Board of Directors, staff and volunteers reflect the many faces, cultures and walks of life that proudly make up our world.
We respect, value and celebrate the unique attributes, characteristics and perspectives that make each person who they are. We also believe that bringing diverse individuals together allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our communities. It is our aim, therefore, that our partners, strategies and investments reflect these core values.
We at CRUW vow to be intentional in our efforts to identify, discuss and challenge issues of race and the impact(s) it has on our organization, systems, partner agencies, and community as a whole. We will also challenge ourselves, and our stakeholders, to understand, discuss, and correct any inequities and biases we may discover as we endeavor to move our community in the right direction.
