In 2023, Crossroads will scale up job training, employment and affordable housing opportunities with the opening of two buildings on our new Buchanan Campus in North Nashville. It will expand our reach as an effective and sustainable model for breaking the cycle of poverty, joblessness and homelessness among opportunity youth.
Our new property will feature:
- 22 units of affordable housing – 16 efficiency units, two 3-bedroom apartments for shared living or for young adults who are parenting.
- Classroom space for career readiness and life skills training, such as financial literacy and conflict management, and a humane education center.
- Social enterprise space to expand job training and employment opportunities (e.g., pet grooming school and salon, dog training, commercial dog-treat bakery, dog coffee shop/cafe, etc.)
- Community Development that is equity focused and supports the goals of the North Nashville Community Plan.
