Partnering with the police on early intervention.
Crossroads is proud to partner with Ottawa Police Services to offer the Intersections Program. Intersections is an evidence-informed early intervention program for children up to the age of 13 years old with suspected mental health, developmental, and/or substance abuse issues who are at risk of becoming involved with the justice system. A child and youth worker helps the identified child and their family access and coordinate community support services to reduce and prevent further interaction with police services and the justice system.
