Crossroads is an eight-bed S.W.E.T.P. (Supportive Work Education and Transition Program) that serves male and female adolescents between the ages of 16 and 20 years. Youth in this program are referred by the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF). These youth are at the point in their lives where they need to learn and practice the critical skills needed to succeed once they move on and are living on their own. This program, located in Norwich, Connecticut is a community-based transitional living apartment program that strives to empower young adults to reach their full potential. The youth are supervised 24 hours per day by our trauma-informed staff members who work with these young men and women to achieve their goals.
Access provides apartment-style living in which they can focus on the development of independent living skills as well as educational and vocational achievement. These skills include interpersonal and community awareness and engagement, knowledge, and management of medical conditions, and maximization of education, vocation, and community integration. Youth participate in scheduled recreational activities, educational trips, and cultural events to increase the ability to function positively in the community.
Crossroads is funded by the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF).
