Crossroads offers programs to help humans and animals connect, learn and grow.
In 2013, Crossroads Campus opened Crossroads Pets Shop & Adopt in Nashville’s historic Germantown neighborhood
This site operates as a social enterprise where young adults gain experience working in our pet retail store and grooming salon, and caring for the dogs and cats that are available for adoption.
The animals we serve come via partnerships with larger shelters in Middle Tennessee and are often in need of extra time, training and attention to help ready them for life with new families.
Our young adults are actively engaged in the care and socialization of our adoptable animals. This is where we truly see the healing power of the human-animal bond.
We Promote Positive Change
The individuals we serve face multiple barriers. In response, we provide a long term, comprehensive approach that gives young people the time and support they need to create a path out of poverty and build sustainable futures, but that journey requires more than just employment and education.
We promote interdependency by offering hope, providing access to opportunity and building community.
- Giving young people the opportunity to take on and succeed at new challenges.
- Providing role modeling, mentoring and encouragement through a dedicated and caring staff.
- Creating the opportunity for our young people to make a difference in the lives of the homeless dogs and cats in our care.
We invite you to believe with us in the healing power of the human-animal bond.
