KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - Crossroads Rescue Mission continues to give a helping hand to those in need by expanding its services in Kearney.

On Monday, the nonprofit held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new transitional living center. Once the work is complete, the 15-unit housing area will be able to house up to 27 people.

There’s been a huge need for affordable housing in Kearney that Crossroads has recognized for years.

“This has been a project that has been in the making for quite a long time and we’re finally getting to the final line,” said Brian Levander, Crossroads Rescue Mission Board President.

The housing will be for those who have completed the four phase recovery program and are in a position to move out into the community. This gives them the chance to live on campus and still have services close by, but with a little more independence.

During the ceremony, First National Bank of Omaha presented a $20,000 check toward the project.

Levander said they are fortunate to have them as a team member and the many donors throughout the community who have supported them up to this point.

This is just a part of a larger nearly $3 million project.

The new transitional living center is expected to be complete by spring of 2022.
