Serving Students from the Heart

“Since my work began here at Amethyst I haven't had anything but positive experiences with the staff at Crossroads Charter Schools. For a lot of residents the process of enrolling their children in school is a task. From the beginning of my experience I have always felt helped by everyone I come in contact with. Nina, Bethany and Trevor have been amazing to work with and always try to make sure things fit our program and the work we do as much as possible. I have seen with all the staff I've worked with the heart to help the families we work with. It has been so great to see the PE coach and some of the teachers come to our virtual school to meet with kiddos by providing them the additional support they need. Communication is always first with Crossroads Charter Schools staff and it has been very beneficial in meeting the needs of our families. I appreciate everything Crossroads has done for Amethyst Place and it does not go unnoticed.


*Amethyst Place has been reunifying families and transforming lives for more than 20 years. Entering the program, the typical mom is 32, in early recovery from substance use, and without a home for her family. She lacks a high school education, is dually diagnosed with substance use and mental health disorders, and has a history of foster care, parental substance use, sex trafficking, domestic violence, and justice system involvement. Two-thirds of moms have lost custody of their children due to substance use and poverty, yet their families are typically reunified within days or weeks at Amethyst Place.
