At The Crossroads reaches out to homeless youth and young adults to help build healthy and fulfilling lives. Their innovative model focuses on young people who do not access traditional services and are disconnected from any type of consistent support. The organization focuses on this underserved population by providing a combination of nighttime street outreach and one-on-one counseling that is shaped around the needs of each individual client. It aims to build healthy, trusting relationships with its clients, through which the clients can define their own goals and develop plans to accomplish them. At The Crossroads also collaborates with other agencies to ensure that there is an accessible, comfortable continuum of support that will provide their clients with realistic opportunities to achieve these goals. To learn more about At the Crossroads, you can go to http://atthecrossroads.org/ to watch a short introductory documentary.
After learning about how At the Crossroads fundraises and receives funding, EPIP participants will help At The Crossroads prepare street outreach supplies that will be handed out to young homeless people in the Mission and Downtown areas of San Francisco. This will include putting together packets of chocolate, Q-tips, sorting travel hygiene items and organizing other supplies.
If you have any travel-sized toiletries to donate, please bring them.
We look forward to seeing you!
