Take The First Step Towards Structured Sober Living

Founder/Director Donald Flagg along with a talented team of professionals on the Board of Directors, Advisory Council and Volunteers thrive in working together to accomplish Crossing Over’s goals and mission. We welcome you to meet our team!

FOUNDER

Donald believes in recovery this is something he knows personally. He has been in recovery for over 14 years. He also knows relapse is not a requirement but it is part of his story. With exceptions, open-handedness and willingness, he was able to start a new journey that gave him the passion and vision for Crossing Over, a transnational Christian Sober-House for men.

 

Donald is completely convinced that everything works out for the good for those who love the Lord. From personally losing himself and all things around him through his own struggles and experiences is where Crossing Over came. READ MORE
