Residential Services

Residential Services:

Our Residential Services are an excellent fit for people who want to live independently in a house with two or three roommates.

What can each person expect at their new house?

  1. The person chooses which house, duplex or apartment feels like home.
  2. Each home has three or four bedrooms.
  3. Each person served interviews a potential new roommate and chooses if they want to live with this person or prefer to interview someone else.
  4. Individuals live independently and are supported and empowered to make choices based on individual preferences, likes, and dislikes.
  5. Depending on the level of support for all individuals who reside in the house, Crossroads staff is available onsite on a 24-hour basis if need be. Crossroads staff’s flexibility allows this support level to change month to month as determined by the individual’s service plan.
  6. Crossroads ensures capacity for new referrals by opening new houses when needed.
