CBlocal is a group within Crossbridge that organizes our local outreach opportunities.

All of our activities will be in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area and will focus on loving people who are in need- whether they are homeless, foster children, lonely senior citizens, children & adults with special needs, families with financial hardships, or anyone going through a difficult time. Our goal is to embody what it says in John 13:35:

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

If you are looking for more ways to love people, here are some other organiztions where you can volunteer your time.

The Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission focuses on providing for the practical & spiritual needs of the hungry, homeless & hurting in Philadelphia. They provide meals and transitional housing for Men. They have several ways to volunteer: SundayBreakfast.org

Meals on Wheels is a wonderful organization that provides meals to local senior citizens who are homebound get a hot meal & a visit from a friendly face that day. Several of our CBLocal members have recently gone to volunteer training to assist in this ministry, and they can always use more help! If you'd like to get involved with this ministry, please contact Teresa Christoff to volunteer or get more information. This is a great opportunity and only requires once a month commitment for about 2 hours.

When youth age-out of foster care, there is a good chance they have no safety net. The Age-Out Angels Foundation is dedicated to helping these children avoid the pitfalls and succeed in life. Our mission is to help age-outs gain access to all the services available to them. We fill the gap that exists between youth and services. We make sure their paperwork is up to date and on time, that they have food, shelter, healthcare. To volunteer, donate or for more info, visit:  https://www.ageoutangels.org/
