We had the opportunity to tour Crossroads earlier this month.
Crossroads is a public-private partnership between Washoe County Adult Services and Catholic Charities designed to identify, intervene and stabilize high-complexity homeless clients using a tiered housing approach.
The organization collaborates with numerous community partners to provide sober housing, substance abuse and mental health treatment, employment and educational services, and linkages to other services. Crossroads saves our community millions of dollars by preventing jail bookings, encounters with First Responders, Emergency Room and hospital costs, and ongoing court and jail expenses.
Crossroads has saved lives and improved the quality of life for hundreds of clients and the community at large.
Below is a video showing some of those who have been at Crossroads and found the resources they needed.
