Residential Placement


Many referrals to Crossroad come from public officials who work with young people. These include the Department of Child Services, school systems, physicians, the juvenile court system, hospitals, and mental health providers.

Private therapists, members of the clergy, and individual family members may also contact us about a young person or family in need.

Crossroad accepts referrals regardless of race, age, color, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, national origin, ancestry, or status as a veteran. Acceptability for placement is determined solely by the agency’s ability to develop and implement a treatment plan to meet the needs of the referred client(s).

Residential Referral Process

To expedite a residential placement decision, please make sure you have the following information available:

  • Age, gender, and IQ of the youth
  • Preferred program
  • General description of the youth’s situation
  • Any reports or evaluations of the youth

Please contact our Intake Specialist at 260.484.4153, ext. 2060, or by email to make a referral.
