Crossroads for Youth is a private, nonprofit treatment agency that serves at-risk children and youth. Since 1953 we have helped young people and their families from all walks of life. The heart of our mission is the belief that every child deserves a chance.
Crossroads for Youth offers premier programs that give children and teens exactly what they need. For some, a place to feel safe and cared for. For some, a place to learn how to succeed in life. For others, an opportunity to overcome the past. We reach out to at-risk and disadvantaged youth and their families from all over Michigan through our residential, day-treatment and community-based services.
We utilize a proven therapeutic model combining Choice Theory and Adventure Based Experiential Learning techniques built on a foundation of trauma-informed care. We empower youth so that they can learn how to evaluate their own behavior and actions in order to make thoughtful decisions in their lives, while also facilitating emotional and psychological healing. Our beautiful 320-acre, wooded main campus provides an ideal environment from which to offer a wide variety of programming. It is amazing what kids discover about themselves when they are given the opportunity to disconnect from technology.
