Emergency housing (homeless, less than 6-month stay).
Open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.The Family Shelter provides a stable, safe environment for married couples, single parents with children, or single women. Women who are participants in the New Life Recovery Program also live in the shelter. This shelters main objective is to provide emergency shelter to those women and families who find themselves homeless and often without hope. Crossroads is in the business of restoring hope through the services offered to anyone seeking help.
Our mission is to improve the well being of homeless children by providing them with case management and the opportunity to access community services which may help them improve the quality of their lives. The shelter helps the children get through a tough time by building memories in an environment of love and caring staff members. Parents are given the opportunity to access services from Crossroads or other agencies and continue to work or to look for work.
We offer all of the same services as the Men's Emergency Shelter. We try hard to help women and families achieve an independent lifestyle. We also serve as a refuge for families or women who are escaping an abusive environment. Our case managers work with each family on a case-by-case basis to try to determine which course of action will best help the family. We help with everything from enrolling children in school or daycare to referrals to agencies. Our goal is to provide services that make the least disruption for the children but the most helpful for the parents. Families are important. Crossroads philosophy includes family reunification, support, and functionality.
Homeless women can access services by apply at the Family Shelter. The friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable case managers will assist guests with obtaining identification, apply for food stamps or AHCCCS and other important connections to restoring their life to normal.
