The Crossing is a clean and safe residential community providing rehabilitation and transitional housing. The Crossing houses men, women and children caught in cycles of poverty and homelessness. Residents are engaged in various programs suited to their needs including the New Life Program, Post-Graduate Program, STAR Program and Respite Program. New Life Program: A five-phase rehabilitation program integrating academics, spiritual development, career skills, case management, and counseling. This long-term program, which lasts from 12 to 27 months, includes personal life skills training classes in budgeting, nutrition, relational issues, and job readiness. STAR (Strategic Transitional Assistance and Response): A unique transitional housing program for individuals and families who need assistance in sustaining a self-sufficient lifestyle. The program provides educational opportunities, resources, life skills training, and mentoring.

The Crossing houses two computer labs, a 38-machine laundry facility, work-out room, Denver Broncos Youth Center, children's playground, two grassy areas (including an outdoor amphitheater), volleyball and basketball courts, and a barbecue area.
