Back To Top



Crossroads for Youth is a private, nonprofit treatment agency that serves at-risk children and youth. Since 1953 we have helped young people and their families from all walks of life. The heart of our mission is the belief that every child deserves a chance. Our full-service agency offers residential, day treatment, and community-based programs. DAY TREATMENT Includes our Oxford Learning Center and our Hazel Park Learning Center. These programs serve boys and girls ages 11 to 17 and are for kids who face challenges in the community, school, or home. BOYS & GIRLS CENTER Serves ages 11 to 17. The therapeutic approach in these programs is to provide a home-like setting with a foundation of trauma-informed care. ACHIEVEMENT CENTER Serves boys ages 15 to 17. This four-and-a-half month leading-edge, highly structured program helps young men develop discipline and learn new ways to solve problems. As part of their therapy, the boys learn basic everyday skills with an emphasis on personal responsibility for their own choices. LIFE & PREPARATION CENTER Provides basic life skills for males ages 14 to 17. Each day the young men participate in academics, daily living and job preparation skills, therapy, on and off-campus community service, and recreational activity. SUPERVISED INDEPENDENT LIVING Home for girls (boys home opening soon) ages 16 to 19 who would otherwise have no place to live. Program participants receive education, emotional support, mentoring and all the tools they need to be able to leave Crossroads for Youth equipped to be successful on their own.
