About Crossroads Services Board
Crossroads Community Services Board was organized in 1973 as a cooperative venture among the counties of Amelia, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Nottoway, and Prince Edward. The Services Board, the governing body over the agency's programs, consists of representatives appointed by the Board of Supervisors in each of the counties and includes elected officials, individuals receiving services, family and community members.
The focus of the Crossroads Community Services Board is to prevent and treat the occurrence of mental illness, intellectual disabilities, substance use and co-occurring disorders and to enhance the functioning of individuals and families who experience these conditions.
The major efforts of Crossroads are directed toward the trans-formation into a true community based system of care. The individual participates in a service system based on principles of recovery. All programs and services use the recovery model in which peer supports and participation are essential elements.
Funding which supports the service delivery system comes from a variety of sources: state, local and federal governments, and fees for service (over 75% of revenue). Contributions to the agency, which is organized as a public non-profit organization, are tax deductible and represent special revenue which directly benefits individuals receiving services.
In accordance with Federal and State mandates, no person will be excluded from, participation in, denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination in the Board's programs on the grounds of race, color, national origin, age, gender, or disability.
