The Journey to Successful and Sustainable Re-entry Begins Here

Men who have been imprisoned face tremendous challenges as they try to reintegrate back into society.

Returning citizens need advocates, guides, and encouraging re-entry coaches to walk alongside them upon release from prison and as they re-enter, transitioning to live out their faith in freedom.

CrossWalk Center bridges critical social services and discipleship ministry between prison life and freedom.

We offer hope and a future apart from broken prison life to whole-hearted intentional living as the unique individuals God originally created and intended them to be.

The Regional Realities of Re-entry. Every day, five days a week, 245 days a year, at around 2 pm, 50 or more of the 16,300 plus individuals released annually from Texas Department of Criminal Justice prisons, arrive by bus at Houston's Midtown bus terminal.

Isolated from society and our rapidly changing world for a number of years, most ex-offenders lack the basic knowledge of what to do after release. They do not know who to trust or who to turn to for help.

They do not know how to access, much less how to find and navigate, all the regional service providers and ministries that could assist and enable them to transition and reintegrate successfully back into Houston communities and neighborhoods.

Logistically, Houston is a challenging city for anyone to navigate. The city is not only initially overwhelming and frightening to get around in, but it can be nearly impossible because these men return to Houston with little or no money, no job prospects, and basically no means of financial support - just the $50 to $100 issued by the state upon release. It becomes more difficult when they have no identification, no means of transportation, and often no family willing to help them, nor a safe home.

Thank you Kathy, Charles, Jeb, Cody, Warren, Jimmy, Lana, Robert, every donation that gave me the ability to finally be free of my institutionalization. Happy fourth of July crosswalk center and R.T.I.

Prayer Group
I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me.
- Matthew 25:35-36
