Crosspoint Human Services was formed in 1980 by combining the services of the Vermilion Mental Health and Development Center incorporated in 1955 and the Retarded Children’s Center incorporated in 1964.
Crosspoint is a private, not-for-profit Illinois corporation governed by a voluntary board of directors representing Vermilion County with participation of persons served.
Crosspoint’s Vision is that all people should have every opportunity to realize their highest possible level for a productive and healthy life in their community. It is Crosspoint’s mission to provide quality human services in a competent and reliable fashion to individuals, families, and the community. Services are available to persons of any age, without regard to race, religion, national origin, handicap, or ability to pay. Crosspoint is an equal opportunity employer.
Crosspoint serves persons experiencing emotional, familial, or marital stress, or more severe, acute, or chronic psychiatric disabilities. Other persons served experience developmental delays or mild to profound developmental disabilities. Some experience both mental and developmental disabilities. Each of these three groupings has some individuals who abuse drugs. That behavior exacerbates an already difficult situation in treatment.
Crosspoint services include Care Coordination, Crisis Intervention, Counseling, Therapy, Social and Daily Living Skill Training, Psychotropic Medication/Prescription Administration, Medication Counseling Training, Money Management through Representative Payee Services, Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy, Housing, Transportation, Community Education and Consultation, Psycho Social Rehabilitation, and Employment Development and Placement.
Crosspoint is licensed by the Department of Public Health to operate a community living facility, is licensed by the Illinois Department of Human Services to provide Medicaid Mental Health Services, Community Integrated Living Arrangements and Day Training, and is nationally accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and Children, Inc.
Crosspoint is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Illinois Department of Human Services, Illinois Department of Health and Family Services, Vermilion County Mental Health 708 Board, Danville Area United Way, donations, fees, and private contracts with long term care providers and health insurance companies.
