Providing the Skills for Living Successful Independent Lives​


Young Adult Program

Crossroads Community’s Young Adult Program helps young adults acquire the skills they need to make a successful transition to independent living. We help them build foundations in the following benchmark areas, ensuring they are as prepared as possible for progression into adulthood:

  • Housing - finding a safe, affordable and stable place to live.
  • Education - obtaining a high school diploma or GED, post-secondary education, or enrollment in an occupational skills training program.
  • Vocation - accessing supported employment services, including job coaching and work skill development.
  • Mentoring - establishing an ongoing social support network throughout the transition to adulthood.
  • Finances - achieving financial stability through employment or entitlements, and establishing credit and basic identification documents to allow for self-sufficiency.
  • Healthcare - connecting with appropriate healthcare services to address both physical and behavioral healthcare needs.
  • Independent Living Skills - acquiring the necessary skills to live independently; cooking, cleaning, laundry, hygiene.
