People Services – Case Studies

“During last quarter, I helped a blind individual get on Medi-Cal. He was getting different answers from County and Covered CA. I helped him get on the Working Disable 250% program by collecting cans. So now he can apply for IHHS and go see his doctors. He was very happy and surprised on how smoothly the process went when I helped them, especially since they didn’t get anywhere for the last 2-3 months. They were nice enough to give quotes for Crossroads.”

“Did you ever dream of attending the first day of college and never showing up again until the mid-term and finals? Cory had such a unique and enviable college experience.  He passed his tests as a double major Psychology/Computer Science/Math graduate at Oregon University. However, he spent most of the time in his dorm room, working alone online. Social anxiety has added a solitary element of his life that continued even after he left college. For 12 years, he lived an introverted period of time to cope with some social roadblocks. About a year ago, he began attending a weekly workshop at the Mind Institute in Sacramento: Access to Employment, High and Low Technology Tools for Gainful Employment. Cory described it as a very accepting atmosphere enveloping him, giving him a place to interact with others, and having a positive group experience. His sensory overloads were understood. In time, he accepted a job at the Mind Institute and now contributes with other computer specialists.”

“I met Tim October 2016. He was seeking help with obtaining employment because he had been on several interviews but never received call backs. Tim was eager to start working and earn his own money to pay for driving classes so he could get his license. Tim went above and beyond with participation and learning everything he could from the workshops. After completing his workshops, I had set up an interview at Smart and Final for Tim. Tim was excited and felt prepared for his interview. Crossroads wanted Tim to feel confident at his new job so Crossroads purchased work clothes for him- Tim was very appreciative. Drum roll please… After 1 week of working- the manager had stated he wanted to hire Tim after his internship ends because of his hard work and amazing work ethic! If I can describe Tim in one word… DETERMINED! Tim doesn’t let his disability hold him back, he doesn’t let lack of transportation hold him back, he doesn’t let anything hold him back! Tim is willing to put in the hard work to reach his goals and I’m thrilled I get to witness it!”

In the youth program they have helped by setting me up with a job site as soon as possible. Crossroads has taught me a lot since I’ve been in this program. Crossroads does what they say they will do while other programs do not. You guys are number ONE in my book!”

“The people that run the youth program is what really puts this program ahead of any that are similar. Instead of feeling like a client I’m treated like a friend. Obviously you want your friends to be taken well care of and that’s what they do. They always make sure I feel comfortable where I am and make sure I am constantly updated on things I need to know.”

“What makes Crossroads unique and different is the fact that they are willing help others succeed in life and gives us the opportunity to gain work experience to increase our work ethic. Most places that say they will help you don’t really help or motivate you, but you guys are the real deal and I thank you for everything!”

“Crossroads is different because they know the situation and know how to handle it. They were able to get a hold of insurance people. In my situation, I couldn’t get any help.  You (Crossroads) were able to get the information and people to get me my insurance, but also give me different options when needed.”

“Crossroads is different because they bend over backwards to help us. I worked so hard for my brother and all I got was passed around to different agencies and no straight answers. It was a complete waste of my time. Crossroads came in and was reliable and extra helpful and got it done for us in two meetings!”

Commercial Services – Customer Testimonial

“The staff puts 100% into all that they do. I have heard a lot of good comments from the Island on how well they take care of their customers on a daily basis. The staff has really taken a better look at over all cleanliness since I have taken over and really enjoy working alongside them. This is a great opportunity for those with disabilities because it keeps them active and gives them a sense of pride for doing a good job on a daily basis. This making sure that they are being recognized and as well helps them to maybe overcome fears that they might still have. I enjoy watching them learn and do new things and know that it makes a difference for them and their families when they get to talk about life and not focus on their underlying problems every day.”

“It is always nice to come in to work the day after Crossroads came. Everything is fresh and clean with new paper towels, soap and emptied trash cans. They will even take our used boxes out to the recycling bin. I think it is very important that everyone has an opportunity to have a meaningful purpose each day, and I am glad that Crossroads provides this opportunity for people. It feels like it is to better our community. I would say the personalized service definitely makes all the difference.  It feels like a family-run business. They are always helpful and friendly.”
