News Releases

The Cocopah Indian Tribe contributed $15,000 to the City of Yuma, which in turn donated that money to support Crossroads Mission. Under the Arizona Gaming Compact, Native American Tribes with casinos are required to share a percentage of their profits with local governments in support of local programs and nonprofit groups.
