Our Mission

To provide residential supports for runaway and
homeless males 16-20, in an atmosphere supporting the dignity, respect, and self-sufficiency of each youth. 

Plymouth Crossroads is a not-for-profit organization which welcomes disconnected, abused and homeless youth males ages 16-20. We provide caring staff that help youth develop their own plan for an independent path to their future. Our transitional program offers support for education, job training & placement and life skills support at no cost to youth.

The mission of Plymouth Crossroads is to provide supports to empower abused, runaway and homeless youth, ages 16-20.  We work in conjunction with our youth to develop independent, healthy paths to their future by offering them the tools they need to be self-supportive and avoid long-term dependency on social services. As a voluntary program, services are aimed at preventing recidivism, while promoting a more stable and productive lifestyle, with the goal for every youth to transform themselves into a contributing and productive member of society.
