Crossroads Transitional Living (MD)

Acquiring life skill knowledge and experiences is crucial for youth in the foster care system if they’re going to make it on their own after “aging-out” of state care. The majority of foster youth are not prepared and the consequences can be devastating. Arrow Crossroads Community is designed to prepare girls, ages 13-21, for successful independent living after foster care. The Arrow LifeHouse (dorm living for 12 girls) and three cottage homes (apartment-style living for two girls in each cottage) are home for these girls as they receive individualized life skills assessment and training, therapeutic services, and multidisciplinary treatment planning. Through progressive goal achievements, girls are able to earn the privilege of moving from The Arrow LifeHouse to the less structured life of a cottage before leaving for independent life as adults.
