Claremont Chamber of Commerce Nonprofit Organization of the Year
Since 1974, the mission of Crossroads is to provide housing, education, support, counseling, and employment training in a homelike environment for women who have been incarcerated. Our primary goal is to empower women with new skills to help them step out of the revolving door of prison and move towards economic self-sufficiency.
Formerly incarcerated women have multi-layered needs. It is not enough to provide food and shelter to break the cycle of addiction and prison. Through our six-month residential program, women learn skills to cope with everyday living through specific curricula, case management, and a supportive living environment. We serve 30-32 women per year. We expect that almost all of our residents will complete the program, become economically self-sufficient, and not return to prison.
