The mission of Crossroads for Women is to provide comprehensive, integrated services to support women working to break the cycle of homelessness and incarceration and achieve healthy, stable, and self-sufficient lives in the community for themselves and their children.
Let’s review some facts:
- More than 50% of prison and jail inmates meet criteria for mental health problems
- 60% meet criteria for substance abuse problems
- 33% meet the criteria for both
For women in these criteria, or in an abusive relationship, without any type of intervention their lives will continue in a downhill spiral, as well as taking their children on a ride that will negatively affect them for the rest of their lives.
Crossroads for Women is not just counseling, not just rehabilitation, not just housing, and not just support, but a combined and individualized program to help women and their families break that cycle.
We get to the heart of what women need to transform their lives.
