Partners

We are invested in creating meaningful relationships with our partners to help them achieve their goals, and set them up for long-term success. Whether local, regional, or international, our partners are answering the call to influence radical life change.


World change doesn’t need to happen in remote locations. Poverty, injustice, and lack of resources occurs right in our own backyard. God calls us to serve and love our neighbors—and we’re not stopping anytime soon.

Hunger Corp


Cause: Disaster Relief, Small Business & Community Development
Location: Puerto Rico


When something tragic happens people tend to look towards the government for help.

So we partner with Hunger Corp, a partner dedicated to the hard work of organizing the logistics of relief. We’ve sent experts and volunteers alike, and we’ll keep going for as long as it takes to lend a hand to our Caribbean brothers and sisters.

Jeevan Aadhar


Cause: Human Trafficking
Location: Mumbai, India


When it comes to putting an end to human trafficking, it’s not enough to just break down doors and free the victims. Those same survivors need ongoing care, job training, and profound emotional support. Enter Jeevan Aadhar, a best-in-class NGO working to bring healing to young adults exploited sexually. JA’s work continues to expand with incredible results. This work is a marathon, not a sprint, and we’re in it for the long haul. Consider joining us in this important work.

Mahima Home


Cause: Human Trafficking
Location: Kolkata, India


A global problem requires multiple solutions. Similar to JA (see Jeevan Aadhar), Mahima Home exists to provide emotional, social, and spiritual healing along with vocational training for those rescued from the evils of sexual exploitation. It also takes in kids who are most at risk of being abducted into the trade. In other words, they save lives! The current short-term goal? Reach thousands of vulnerable children in nearby villages and help change the face of trafficking. We want in.

Apple of God’s Eyes


Cause: Human Trafficking
Location: Kathmandu, Nepal


Over the past decade or so, India has become increasingly intolerant of Christian organizations. Add to that, the fact that most kids who end up trafficked in India are from small villages in Nepal, it became increasingly clear that Crossroads needed a partner in that country. Apple of God’s Eyes is that partner. It’s an aftercare home, an education center, and an oasis for the most vulnerable in Nepal. Apple has had generational success with kids, launching them back into the fight as passionate leaders. Yes, we would like to support that, please.

Five14 Nepal


Cause: Human Trafficking
Location: Kathmandu, Nepal


We slap “born for adventure” on our T-shirts, but this organization actually lives adventure. Human trafficking is a complex problem and FIVE14’s solution is extremely unique. They exist to facilitate “ethical tourism”. By guiding tourists from around the world into some of Nepal’s most beautiful, remote, and frankly, impoverished communities, they help establish an economic alternative to the slave trade. It’s an upstream solution and it’s incredible. Take it from the guy writing this paragraph, if you ever have the chance to go on a FIVE14 trip, do it. It will change the world, and you, along with it.

Freedom Firm


Cause: Human Trafficking
Location: India


If you’re an NGO doing incredible work on the frontlines of the sex trafficking war, we’re interested in helping support it. Freedom Firm is that type of organization. Think of them as a team of private investigators and freedom fighters who break down doors and physically remove girls from the hell-on-earth situations they are trapped in. In other words, badass heroes doing incredible work.

Love Justice


Cause: Human Trafficking
Location: Nepal


Love Justice International seeks to protect the most vulnerable, to see their value, and to recognize their worth. Love Justice uses transit monitoring to prevent human trafficking. Transit monitoring focuses on identifying and assisting potential victims of trafficking as they're being trafficked, but before they reach the destination where they may be in danger of being exploited and enslaved. LJI “intercepts” someone when it is believed that the person is in the process of being trafficked or is at high risk of being trafficked. This model aims to attack trafficking at the most strategic moment—while it is in the process of occurring, but before potential victims have been exploited or enslaved. Transit monitoring is, as far as we know, the world’s only tangible human trafficking prevention model.

When looking for a partner to help bring change in Nicaragua, Amigos for Christ is an obvious choice. Amigos was started by an engineer who understood that one of the most foundational elements of a thriving community is clean water, so that’s what they do.

It’s incredible work that changes lives, including yours, for the better.
