"A new path, a better life"

St. Vincent’s Residence/ Crossroads Program

In 2009, we built a new three-story studio apartment building, which expanded our housing capacity by 27 units. Then in early 2010, we began a partnership with Washoe County Social Services (WCSS), which is now known as the Crossroads Program. WCSS uses our apartment buildings to house about 120 men and women who have graduated from local homeless shelters and substance abuse treatment programs. The program’s goal is to prevent relapses into homelessness and substance abuse, and to reduce costs associated with jail, hospital and other emergency service costs. The program has shown tremendous success with many community partners, and Washoe County estimates that Crossroads is saving the community about $4 million per year. The average length of stay for Crossroads residents is about 102 days. 96% of residents volunteer in the community and 25% of them have been reuinted with their families since they entered the program.

The Park House

In May of 2013, we renovated three 1955 multi-unit housing complexes on Montello Street in Reno, and were able to expand our Crossroads program to an additional property. The Park House added an additional 21 beds to the program, helping even more local men and women find sobriety and a better path in life. At The Park House, clients will be wrapped in social services as they continue their regular treatment programs. They will be surrounded by a live-in network which will aim to help them establish healthy relationships, a sense of community, and improved life and social skills. We believe both Crossroads and The Park House are benchmark programs that have the potential for expansion and replication both locally and statewide. We are currently searching for new local properties to enable us to further expand these programs.
