of your goal reached

Established in 1985 and operating continuously since then, Crosswalk is one of two licensed emergency shelters serving runaway and homeless youth in Eastern Washington. An array of professional case managers, teachers, health care workers, and chemical dependency counselors work with Crosswalk youth with the primary goal of ending their homelessness and providing/connecting them to stabilizing and supportive services.
Most Crosswalk kids have complicated personal histories resulting in a great deal of trauma. It often includes family conflict, lack of education, substance abuse, mental health issues, high-risk for depression and suicide and sexual abuse.
