Crossroad Child & Family Services in Fort Wayne expanded its residential treatment program with the opening of a new 15-bed unit.

Crossroad officially opened the new residential unit Aug. 3, with plans to start placing children in the building over the coming weeks. This will provide up to 15 additional beds to Crossroad’s existing 60 beds for open and secure residential treatment.

The new unit is unique for its ability to adapt the living space for different levels of care. Placements into the unit will depend on the needs of children at any given time.

Constructing the unit was one part of Crossroad’s “Building Promising Futures” capital campaign. In addition to opening more beds on campus, Crossroad has also built a Treatment & Welcome Center to better serve residential and outpatient counseling clients.

An opening for the Treatment & Welcome Center is tentatively planned for the fall, but is subject to change due to COVID-19.

Crossroad provides both residential and non-residential services including outpatient counseling in Fort Wayne and Huntington, home-based therapy and casework services, community-based mental health wraparound programs for youth, day education at Crossroad Academy, and several residential treatment programs for children aged 6 to 21.
