Develop the Basic Skills Necessary for Independence

Often times young adults require assessment and coaching in order to develop and hone the necessary life skills necessary for long-term independence and success. At The Crossroads uses the Casey Life Skills model as a guide to develop individualized life skills training programs for our clients. Working through the life skills component of our program in turn helps the young adults to gain confidence and traction in working towards their life goals. Once a young adult develops a healthy set of life skills, independence is that much more attainable.
