About Us

What We Are

Crossroad is a faith-based, nonprofit treatment provider for troubled children and their families. Behind that simple description is a long list of therapy, education, and family support services provided both to children who live on our campus and in the surrounding community.

Who We Are

A team of a chaplain, case managers, teachers, therapists, housekeepers, cooks, nurses, and others – working together to build Promising Futures for Children.

How Children Come to Us

Children come to Crossroad through a variety of avenues. Judges, mental health professionals, public service agencies, counselors, and educators may refer children to Crossroad to receive services. Some youth come to us through and with their families.

How We Got Started

The German Reformed Church in the United States, a predecessor of today’s United Church of Christ, established Crossroad in 1883 as “The Reformed Orphan’s Home of Fort Wayne, Indiana.” Learn more about our history.
