Hope and advocacy. A dream and persistence.

 

In 1972 Crossroads Industries, Inc. was founded upon just that. Times were changing. Institutions for the disabled were closing and group homes were beginning to open. Parents and caregivers were advocating for meaningful opportunities for their loved ones with disabilities. Opportunities such as paid employment were taking the stage. A chance for anyone of any ability to make meaningful contributions to society was becoming the main focus. Crossroads Industries, formerly the Gaylord Opportunity Center was started by advocates as a 501©3 non-profit, and remains so today. “Creating opportunities for employment and social independence” are the words Crossroads lives by, as it is their mission statement.

As a multi-faceted company, Crossroads is proud to provide many different opportunities for the individuals it serves. In keeping with the mission, Crossroads Business Services (CBS) provides paid work for clients in a professional setting. Located just four blocks away from Studio 45 and The Creative Pursuit, CBS is a one stop shop for many local businesses. Providing bulk mailing services, printing & copies along with small manufacturing jobs, CBS is a consistent source of income for many of Crossroads clients. CBS also offers commercial Janitorial Services, and prides themselves on supporting businesses, while enhancing lives.
With all of these parts working seamlessly together, Crossroads is able to provide a wide variety of purposeful opportunities for the disabled community. The Board Members and employees are continuously looking for ways to advocate for our clients. Crossroads will continue to adapt and evolve to meet the needs of the individuals in which they serve. Dreams continue to be fulfilled and the persistence is just as strong as it was nearly 50 years ago.
