Many referrals to Crossroad come from public officials who work with young people. These include the Department of Child Services, school systems, physicians, the juvenile court system, hospitals, and mental health providers.
Private therapists, members of the clergy, and individual family members may also contact us about a young person or family in need.
Crossroad accepts referrals without regard to race, age, color, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, national origin, ancestry, or status as a veteran. Acceptability for placement is determined solely upon the agency’s ability to develop and implement a treatment plan to meet the needs of the referred client(s).
Residential Referral Process
