Crossroads Inc.

“We love the women until they are able to love themselves.”

Helping and empowering women to self-sufficiency, one woman at a time.

About Us

For 45 years, we have provided HOPE and HOME for previously incarcerated women. Our vision is for these women to THRIVE in the larger community.

Sometimes, people need more than a second chance. It takes time, preparation and resources to be able to fully take advantage of opportunities.  But when the time comes for that person to make a change, our belief is that we, as a community, need to be ready to journey along with that person in order to make those changes within that person’s life.

“Crossroads helped me find myself and helped me understand that my past is my past, and it doesn't label me as who I am.”
