To the editors:

I would like to compliment the Reader and Ben Joravsky for a very excellent article about the Crossroads Fund [Neighborhood News, April 15]. I wish to clarify a couple of points made by Mr. Joravsky.

Crossroads is not the "brainchild" of any one individual, since at least a dozen people were involved in the founding efforts. Robert Weissbourd, one of Crossroads' principal founders and first president, is among those who played a critical role in the organization's success.
