The Mission of Holy Cross Services is to bring hope, promote change, and help people live free, healthy, and productive lives.
Holy Cross focuses on two service areas, Homelessness and Family and Children Programs.
We help our children and families learn to be adaptive, resilient, and to manage risk and protective factors to be successful in the community. Our treatment approach promotes a process of change to assist our children and families in improving their own health and wellbeing, to live self-directed lives, and achieve their full potential. Holy Cross offers quality treatment, and we offer the most important ingredient – HOPE!
