Shop With Purpose
What is Share the Ware?
Share the Ware is the brainchild of a group of passionate Crossroads employees who wanted to create a unique way to involve program clients in the Crossroads mission. After lots of brainstorming, hard work and a little blood, sweat and even a few tears, their idea is successfully being accomplished with two Share the Ware locations. Each location supports the Crossroads mission but in two very different ways.
Missouri Valley - 601 Ontario Street
This location provides community integration opportunities and real work experience for individuals with intellectual disabilities. The store cultivates a sense of community pride, helping fulfill a need to provide quality vocational services to individuals as well as a fun shopping experience full of great buys and unique finds to local residents.
Council Bluffs - 1852 Madison Avenue - RE-OPENING SOON!
The CB location is undergoing a bit of a makeover. As we rearrange clothing racks, create displays and revamp the overall layout, we anticipate a new and exciting shopping experience. Scheduled to re- open in mid-July, this particular location's purpose will be to serve as a fundraising platform for Crossroads' Fresh Start Fund program. Any and all proceeds that are collected at this location will go directly towards assisting clients who are in need of household items like a bedroom set, kitchenware, work uniforms and toiletries.
What you’ll find at Share the Ware:
- trendy jewelry and accessories
- best selling books
- constantly changing inventory
- designer labels
- name brands

Volunteers may work as many days or hours as desired to help stock merchandise, serve customers and maintain the appearance of the store. We appreciate our volunteers!
