ATC believes that unconditional support transforms lives. There is nothing our clients can do that will make us think that they are beyond help. We know from experience that when young people identify their own goals at their own pace, they are much more likely to accomplish and sustain them. For us, there is no single definition of “success” and there are no “right” answers. Everything about ATC’s work is client-centered; we shape our services around the specific needs of young people on the streets. We support them through ups and downs, help them overcome obstacles, and empower them to create the lives they envision. We want to help every client thrive, not just survive.
Our philosophy is centered around three guiding principles:
We focus on the most disconnected youth.
We make it as easy as possible to work with us.
Our support is unconditional.
“I’ve been going through a lot, and At The Crossroads has really been there. I don't have a lot of support, as far as family, so having you guys—you guys are like my family.”
