Fall Virtual Graduation 2020​

Every quarter, The Crossroads Center celebrates the accomplishments of our patients and clients who have completed the requirements to graduate from our program. With COVID-19, it created a challenge and impacted the way that we celebrate. Yet, The Crossroads Center is never one to shrink from a challenge and nothing was going to stop us from celebrating with our graduates. We developed a "Virtual Graduation" with all of the meaning and significance of an in-person graduation and we wanted to share the excitement of the event with you.
