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 anyone 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 at 134a Princes Way where The Crossing is currently operating was listed for sale in 2002, and arrangements were made for its purchase. With a great deal of assistance from volunteer local tradespeople and service clubs, the building was stripped and refurbished.

For over 30 years now, we have continued our work in Drouin, providing love, care and nourishment where it matters most.
