Mission Statement

Crossroads Safehouse is a domestic violence emergency shelter for victims of intimate partner abuse and their children. Crossroads offers a continuum of services, including advocacy, intervention, awareness and education.

Organization History

The need for emergency safe housing and supportive services for domestic violence victims and their children was identified by a group of concerned Fort Collins citizens in the late 1970's. In 1980 Crossroads Safehouse opened its doors and was full within the first four hours. Since then Crossroads has expanded from a non-disclosed four bedroom safehouse to a disclosed 29,000 square foot facility with 32 bedrooms and 104 beds that now serves victims of domestic violence including not only women and their children but also men and all identifying genders.

Testimonials

Crossroads Safehouse serves men, women and children who are trapped in dangerous, seemingly impossible situations. Every client has a story to tell. Each story is different and compelling.

Janet left her spouse of twelve years and arrived at Crossroads Safehouse with their three children, all under the age of six. She and her family had been victims of psychological, financial, and physical abuse. Prohibited by the abuser from seeking medical care and medications for diagnosed Rheumatoid arthritis and a rare form of cancer; Janet's health was deteriorating rapidly. Maintaining a roof over her children's heads, access to food, clothing, and financial support would be at risk if she left the situation for good.

After obtaining safe shelter and other services at Crossroads, Janet embarked on a personal mission. She began taking the necessary steps to become self-sufficient in order to create a new life for herself and her children. She received ongoing support from her personal advocate. The children were also supported by a specially trained youth advocate and a child therapist. Her medical issues were addressed with assistance from the onsite medical clinic. Janet began divorce and custody proceedings by obtaining legal representation from the onsite legal firm. With her new-found confidence, strength, and determination she knew that a much better life was possible for herself and her children.

Due to the generous support of donors like you, there was a happy ending to this story and thousands of others throughout the 36 year history of Crossroads Safehouse. We are currently located in a 104 bed, 32 bedroom secure facility that is a resource city and a home for men, women and children when home is no longer safe. Community members served through outreach and support groups totaled 679. "Time to Talk" dating violence prevention classes reached every student in health classes at all Poudre high schools.Twenty four hour staffed crisis and resource and referral line calls totaled 10,598.

Every $100 donation provides a night of safe shelter or a victim and up to four children. Services to residents and community members are offered free of charge. Colorado Gives Day provides the opportunity to "give where you live", supporting hundreds of domestic violence victims and their children by giving to Crossroads Safehouse today!
