PREPARATION FOR SUCCESSFUL INDEPENDENT LIVING

CROSSROADS TRANSITIONAL LIVING

Healthy adults often have several common denominators, including an education, solid practical life skills, emotional intelligence, social skills, and role models, to lead the way. Most foster children have few of these and are not prepared to make the transition into adulthood. Therefore, acquiring these skills is even more important for youth in the foster care system, including those at Crossroads.


OVERVIEW

Arrow Crossroads Community, a transitional living program of Arrow Child & Family Ministries, assists adolescent girls in learning how to live on their own after leaving the foster care system. Crossroads features dormitory group living and apartment-style living for up to 18 residents. The residents can earn the privilege of moving from dorm-style living to the more independent life in one of three cottage-style apartment homes before transitioning into adulthood.


Each child receives individualized life skills assessment and training, trauma-informed services, and multidisciplinary treatment planning. While at Crossroads, the youth are active members of the community, attending school, working in local businesses, and connecting with volunteers and mentors that become role models to move towards becoming successful adults.
