The Crisis Center: Counseling and Rehabilitation
The Crossroads Crisis Center offers teens free therapy in their native language. Each Crossroads social worker has a caseload of teenagers with whom he or she meets for individual therapy on a regular basis. In addition, they act as case managers, accompanying teens on visits to various community services and maintaining contact with the clients’ families. Counselors find housing for homeless teens. Staff members act as a bridge between teens in need and options in the larger community: jobs, schools, social services, and governmental agencies. When necessary, the caseworker also helps the teen navigate hospitals, courts, and prisons.
At Crossroads, teens learn to help themselves, to seek help for themselves, and to trust the assistance of our social service professionals.
