Our Programs Offer Hope For The 2-Legged & The 4-Legged
Here at Crossroads Campus, we don’t believe it has to be “either or” – that’s why our programs are designed to benefit both the animals and the humans in our community. Together, we can work towards a better world for all of us.
Our Caring Connections & Humane Education program educates Nashville’s youth and young adults on how to care for and connect with animals and prepare them for successful adoptions. Through the program, animals pulled from Metro Animal Control (many of whom came from abusive or neglectful environments) are trained and socialized by our kids (many of whom came from the same types of environments). To learn more about how this program has changed the lives of animals facing euthanasia and “at risk” youth, click here.
We also offer job training to “at risk” youth at our Crossroads Pets – Shop & Adopt Pet Retail Store. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment for learning and equip youth with job skills, social skills, and work experience. Those involved in the program learn inventory, how to work the register, customer-service, animal care and pet grooming skills. They also help socialize our adoptable animals and prepare them for adoption. To learn more about our job training and pet adoptions program, please click here.
Our newest program is our Residential Program, which aims to provide affordable, safe and supervised housing to youth transitioning into life on their own. We are hard at work building a living space above our retail store that will provide temporary housing to youth involved in our programs, and equip them for success through case management, community building exercises, and more. Track the program’s development and learn more here.
