Facility Information

The Safer Foundation's Crossroads Adult Transition Center (ATC) mission is to reduce recidivism by supporting, through a full spectrum of services, the efforts of people with criminal records to become employed, law-abiding members of the community. From the beginning, Crossroads adopted a philosophy that good programming is good security and good security is good programming. In practice that means that residents who are active in programs create far less security problems than those who are not, and where there is structure and order, programs can be effectively implemented.

The Safer Foundation's Crossroads ATC center has a 330-bed capacity and is located at 3210 W. Arthington, on the west side of Chicago. Crossroads ATC provides programming for residents at the point of entry. A series of comprehensive assessments is given to every resident. The results allow staff to develop effective programming to meet their needs. These programs are designed to provide skills, education, opportunities and resources in an attempt to reduce recidivism. The facility consists of one building with four community-style living units, which house general population offenders.
