The CrossWord Cafe

The CrossWord Café/Chillicothe Youth Center, was founded in August 2001 by individuals from several area churches, civic leaders and community organizations. It's staff focus on building positive relationships with students in grades 6-12 through mentoring, tutoring, teaching, discussion groups and just hanging out. They are a drop in center offering many opportunities for staff to connect with students and their families. Their mission is to give every teen in our community an opportunity to experience Christ in a non-threatening environment.
