Crossroads Urban Center
Crossroads Urban Center is a nonprofit, grassroots organization that assists and organizes Utahns with low incomes, disabilities and other challenges to meet basic survival needs and to address essential issues affecting quality of life. They operate a food pantry and thrift store as well as advocate and build and support a multitude of organizations that provide unique and desperately needed services to the community.
Salt Lake is home to a large group of international students – and many of these incredible young men and women call Capital their church family and home. We want to provide opportunities for these brave and brilliant students to feel loved as they are so far away from their family of origin. The “Get Connected” program provides a way for individuals or families to share a meal or some time together and build beautiful relationship.

Capital has had a long-term relationship with our wonderful neighborhood elementary school.

Capital provides financial support, stocks the “Bennion Bucks” store, regularly hosts “Books and Bagels” events provides seasonal support as needs arise.
Annually, Capital provides Christmas gifts for all of the children in the rural and impoverished Goshute tribe, which is located near Wendover, Utah. This partnership is administered through the Christian Center of Park City.
