Mission:

Our mission is to give honor to Jesus Christ by providing accessible, comprehensive health care in partnership with our patients and community leading to healthy, changed lives.

History:

Crossroad Health Center was born in 1992 from a conviction that God has a special concern for the poor. This conviction came from a number of years of Bible study with the Sycamore Street Fellowship, named after the street in Cincinnati's inner city neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine where Julie and Chuck Schubert, two of Crossroad's founders, were living.

Out of this fellowship emerged the four founders of Crossroad (Chuck and Julie Schubert, Sally Stewart and Janet Germann). There were, however, others in the fellowship who are still active in the working of Crossroad two decades after our birth.

With the passion and naivety of young people, our founders and others set out to follow the philosophy of Christ's community development laid down by John Perkins, Founder of Christian Community Health Fellowship, who espoused the three "R's" as he liked to call them: relocation, reconciliation and redistribution. A number of the Sycamore group relocated and moved to Cincinnati's inner city and attempted to reconcile with our neighbors across socioeconomic boundaries. We attended church in the community and tried to just spend time with our neighbors, all aimed at developing relationships. We were able to understand the "felt need" of our community firsthand by getting to know our neighbors.
