Although Loudoun County is one of the wealthiest in the nation, more than 15,000 of its residents live in poverty. And despite the current labor shortage, many qualified job applicants still face unemployment, especially if they are disabled, neurodiverse, elderly, experience homelessness, possess a criminal record, or have limited English proficiency. Crossroads provides participants with a comprehensive, bilingual job training program in which they develop and follow an individualized employment plan that goes well beyond merely assembling a resume. From setting goals to honing interview skills, each participant works with a job counselor throughout the application process and before interviewing with Crossroads' partner employers. The support continues even after participants are hired, ensuring that they transition smoothly into their new roles and remain employed. With 621 program graduates securing permanent jobs, Crossroads brings the promise of self-sufficiency.
