What to expect? 

During your stay at Crossroads there are so many things that will be going through your head and it might seem overwhelming. Here is a step by step of the main objectives of your stay here. (Please note that this does not limit the services and support that we can offer you)


Step 1: Admission Process

Admission would generally be after we would have spoken to you over the phone, and did a visit. During your admission we would have gone through the guidelines and paperwork that would need to be signed and and agreed to. 


Step 2: Breathing period

This is the time that we allow you to get settled into a new routine of staying here. You can also be thinking of the support you may need. This typically takes 24-48 hours.


Step 3: Income

During this time we will be looking at your source of income and which ones you choose to take. Such as social assistance & NB housing, disability, jobs and doing your taxes if you have not done so (in order to give you access to GST if you are eligible). We will support you by providing the phone numbers and information that you would need to access these resources. 


Step 4: Identification

If you have no identification on you and need support accessing them or if you don't currently have the means to pay for this, there are certain agencies that can help with the costs.

Step 5: Housing

There are a lot of different options that you can use when looking for housing and we are here to help give you those ressources. 

Step 6: Waiting Period

During this period is where things may seem more difficult. You are waiting for call backs, getting your ID’s, sometimes just not knowing where else to look. This is a perfect time to take advantage of our programs and our staff to help guide you in the direction you want to go.  Daily programing is made and posted on a calendar at the entrance of the program room. If there is something you need specified help with please find a staff member to let them know. If you do not tell us what your needs are we aren’t able to support you as well as we can. Also it is important that if you do not have a job or many appointments for you to be present in the shelter to be able to have access to all of the support we can offer. 

Please be aware that during this time it is important to be aware of your spending. Which means purchasing food should be to a minimal due to us providing food. This is also a good time to be working on budgeting with staff, to ensure your maximizing your savings during your stay here. 

It is also important to be following the rules, being in by curfew, ensuring your chores are being done, helping out with the cleaning, your room being tidy, being in bed by lights out, so on and so forth. When rules are not being followed you will be receiving broken house rules. With this being said after 3 broken house rules, we are able to assess your stay here and if there is still a need for our services. We are at liberty to ask you to leave or to give you an end date of your stay here. 

Step 7: Moving

During this period you will be feeling overwhelmed with everything you will need to move out. TAKE A BREATH, we are all here to help you as best we can and there are services that can also help you with furniture and household items. 

We will provide you with a moving list and we will gather items that we have for you as well with a foodbox upon leaving day.
