The Crossroads Program is a collaboration between Washoe County Social Services (WCSS) and Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada that began in January of 2011. The program provides a supportive living arrangement for men and women transitioning out of homelessness. Clients in the program are given a safe and caring environment to live in, along with wraparound social services including drug and alcohol counseling, employment support, volunteer/work opportunities, and other tools to help them establish a new, more productive path in life.
The goal of Crossroads is to prevent relapses into homelessness and substance abuse, and to reduce public costs associated with jail, hospital and other emergency services. The program has shown tremendous success with many community partners, and Washoe County estimates that Crossroads is saving the community about $12 million per year.
Clients at Crossroads are wrapped in social services as they continue their regular treatment programs. They are 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 Crossroads is a benchmark program that has the potential for expansion and replication both locally and statewide.
