Due to various circumstances, men who come to us lack key resources to provide basic needs for their families or themselves. Because of this, they rely primarily on outside resources. They may have overextended their personal support systems or rejected other resources, thus requiring significantly longer periods of time to stabilize. Others have experienced a series of traumas, often a result of toxic environments, broken relationships and poor choices.
For men in crisis and in need of assistance, we are a means to re-enter society as self-sufficient, productive citizens. At Crossroads program offers an array of services, geared at preparing men for positive, valuable futures.
The introduction stage is devoted to introducing men to the Crossroads program and live-in accommodations. It is here that staff begins to engage the men through introductory crisis support groups. Men committed to participating in the full program are assigned a case worker and an individualized, crisis-focused program plan.
Crossroads staff works closely with each man to develop feasible steps and goals for accessing available community resources and future housing. They are provided with clinical counseling and group therapy necessary to combat histories of trauma and mental health. Men are equipped to attain competitive employment through the on-site adult education and job-readiness training. Men are engaged spiritually through local church involvement, support groups, Bible classes and chapel services.
This final phase is dedicated to men who have successfully completed the program requirements of earlier phases. Men in this final phase dedicate their time to securing competitive employment, pursuing higher education and attaining safe, independent housing options.
Last year, Crossroads provided 75,995 meals and 45,492 nights of shelter to 1,100 men in crisis.
