The Crossing commenced in 1992 in premises rented from a service station near the Drouin railway overpass; hence, the name The Crossing. At this time, the Crossing opened each weekday from approximately 10 am until 4 pm so that needy people could call in for tea or coffee and a light meal at no cost.
When the rented premises were demolished, the Crossing moved into a house it shared with the Yooralla Society. When the Yooralla Society required more room, the Shire arranged for the Crossing to use the Drouin Library meeting room.
The shop in which the Crossing is currently operating came up for sale, and arrangements were made for its purchase in 2002. With a great deal of assistance from volunteer local tradespeople and service clubs, the building was stripped and refurbished.
We continue to operate at 134a Princes Way Drouin, albeit a little tired and worn around the edges, we still manage to provide love, care and nourishment where it matters most.
In June 2017 we hope to celebrate 25 years in Drouin doing what we do and make a few little improvements along the way. We hope you might join us.
