My daughters, ages 8 and 1, eat hot meals every morning directly because of Crossfire. -A Crossfire's Client

My income is less than $1800 gross a month and we are a family of six. Because of Crossfire we are able to eat nutritious meals and we do not go hungry. Crossfire's services help us reduce the financial stress and stay off of government assistance programs. -Kate

At Crossfire I have learned to hang clothes and tag them. I've learned to pay attention to what I am doing and be nice. Crossfire helps people living on their own and helps me. -A volunteer from Our House


Crossfire Ministries is a faith-based, non-profit organization offering the love of God to folks in tight places through no-cost groceries, clothing and CARE (Classes, Art, Resources, Community)

We deem daily necessities to be food, clothing, personal hygiene items and household goods.

Background Statement

In 1992, John and Leslie Miller had a strong conviction to help people in need in their own community. They established Crossfire to help meet the physical needs of the food insecure, the working poor or underemployed and anyone in need. Crossfire has grown from giving a few loaves of bread to giving over one million pounds of food in 2017. In 2017, Crossfire's services were accessed over 96,000 times by close to 12,000 unique individuals. Crossfire's operations are accomplished by volunteers, including the Co-founders who have never taken a salary for the work they are doing in our community.
