As an agency, we are continuing to grow and develop programs in order to enhance basic, intermediate, and advanced skills to facilitate overall positive, behavioral changes in youth. Additional targeted behaviors to improve upon are: Decision making skills, respect for self, communicate effectively, leadership skills, school performance, accept responsibility, insight, and lastly and probably most important- following instructions! Crossroads, Inc. emphasizes three main areas youth must actively participate in while joining our program: Residential responsibilities - respect for others, self, and the physical home, Education- appreciation for attendance and productivity, and the Counseling component- an introspective approach to behavioral changes.

Crossroads, Inc. will also focus on creating a family lifestyle for each group or residents.
Here they have the opportunity to interact and participate in daily situations that would encourage and develop skills to enhance their abilities to either return to their family homes, local school districts, and communities or live independently as productive young men and women.

Our objective is to instill in each youth a sense of worth that will allow for empathy for others and help the youth identify with their responsibility to their community in the following ways: Facilitate and strengthen family relations thru counseling and group sessions, instruct youth on how to set and achieve realistic goals, accept responsibility for their actions and providing restitution, provide daily opportunities for academic success, understanding of the circumstances that led to the out of home placements and accept their current status, plan and follow thru with the changes that must occur within them to earn a successful discharge, focus on creating healthy attitudes, behaviors, and lifestyles, and empower each individual by meeting the challenges of life events and transitions and utilize skills to help them recognize their potential.
Our mission is to teach young men and women the skills needed to either successfully transition and reintegrate back to their families, communities, and schools or facilitate independent living arrangements.

With these elements in mind, it is the purpose of Crossroads, Inc. to provide a community based, residential/educational experience for court ordered, delinquent, dependent, and voluntary entrustment status youth in need of out of home placements and/or an alternative education. Crossroads, Inc. prides itself on identifying individual needs for programming/ treatment for adolescents at risk for future delinquent or unsafe behaviors. Our staff will be comprised of mentors and professionals who will share information and experiences with the youth. They will exemplify survival, growth, change, and success. Our programming strategies provide a proactive approach to deterring at-risk/ negative/ delinquent behaviors: Providing information- understanding consequences of high-risk behaviors and making healthier life choices, utilizing community and professional support, providing alternatives, learning new skills and interventions, and providing group and individual activities.
