Our Purpose

Our Purpose

Crossroads of Western Iowa is a non-profit organization devoted to supporting adults in our community who, for various reasons, are unable to live completely on their own. Most have some sort of intellectual or physical disability, or are dealing with serious mental illness. For over 40 years, our goal has been to teach our clients life skills and help attain independence. We provide residential options, programming and employment opportunities, so they can reach their full potential at home, at work and in their communities.

Our Values

Crossroads' values guide what we do, why we do it and how we do it.

  • Respect for every individual, consumers as well as staff members.
  • Basic Christian principles; the "golden rule".
  • Everything we do can be done better.
  • All we do must be done in an ethical and honest manner.
  • We must be fiscally responsible.
  • We value teamwork as well as individual contributions.
