Crossroads is a creative and stimulating children's behavioral health organization that offers an increasingly integrated and comprehensive system of services for children, adolescents, and families.
The healthy development of a child as a "whole" person in the context of one's family, culture, care-givers, and community is the foundation of Crossroads' service philosophy. We strive to empower greater resiliency in children and to build protective community-based structures and relationships; and this principle is woven into all of our prevention, early intervention, and treatment services.
Crossroads' service offerings include: early childhood programs, Early Head Start, school-based interventions, community support and home-based services, a therapeutic alternative school, therapeutic foster and respite care, and child psychiatry. We have collaborative partnerships with the early childhood community, child care centers, schools, Juvenile Court, the Lake County Department of Jobs and Family Services, and other child-serving organizations.
Crossroads is a private, nonprofit, community-based organization dedicated to providing a range of services to children and adolescents who are experiencing emotional, behavioral and substance abuse problems.
Founded in 1971 by a group of concerned citizens who recognized the special needs of adolescents and the gap in service geared to them, Crossroads has developed into an agency with a full continuum of services from prevention, and outpatient counseling to intensive services such as partial hospitalization and therapeutic foster care for children from infancy through the teenage years.
Crossroads is governed by a dedicated volunteer board of trustees. The board's membership is diverse and includes individuals who have been recipients of service.
