Crossroads Modified LINKS Program

Dear Crossroads Community,

Last month, in compliance with Governor Reynold’s requirements, we closed our LINKS Day Habilitation Program in an effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Since then, Day Habilitation in Iowa has been reinstated in a modified delivery model specific to coronavirus best practices. After careful consideration, Crossroads has decided to begin offering LINKS services on a limited basis to clients that participate in our Daily Residential Program and reside in Crossroads-supported houses.

Our modified LINKS program, which will continue throughout this pandemic, is still very much client-centered and client-driven, while also designed with social distancing in mind. Clients will continue working on their day habilitation goals and engaging in many activities they enjoyed before the closure. We are even introducing virtual opportunities to interact with and integrate safely into the community without the risk of exposure to Covid-19.

We are very pleased to be offering this service to many of our LINKS clients; however, we are not stopping here! We know there are many within the Crossroads family still unable to join us because of recommendations by the CDC and health authorities around social distancing and group settings. I want you all to know we are striving for innovative solutions to allow all LINKS clients to join us. When we have a model that encompasses those outside our Residential Program, you all will be the first to know. We very much look forward to everyone rejoining our LINKS Day Habilitation Program as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, I encourage you to reach out to your local Market Director. Thank you for your trust and understanding during this time. We are in this together and committed to coming out of this stronger and even more united.


Matt Smith, COO
