There is a nonprofit organization called CrossRoads of Merced that caters to men who want to change their lives. Men who struggle with drug addiction and alcoholism find hope and accountability at CrossRoads of Merced.
The organization gives men the tools to build a solid foundation to help them become productive members of society. CrossRoads of Merced is a safe, clean and sober environment. CrossRoads would like to work with local drug and judicial programs as a transitional housing unit being the bridge from program completion to becoming financially stable and able to successfully contribute to society.
Since opening their doors in 2011, some of CrossRoads clients went on to finish their educations, become CARR-certified drug and alcohol counselors, obtain full-time employment and even have the motivation to complete their bachelor's degree.
CrossRoads is a program of change. If it wasn't for CrossRoads I wouldn't have the opportunity to change my own life and the lives of everyone around me.
