As a not-for-profit organization, Crossroads of Iowa develops exceptional programs for women, including those in jail or prison, with a focus on mental wellness using a holistic approach.   

Our services, classes, and seminars are currently available to all women.

We embrace the ancient tradition of Therapeutic Community for teaching, healing, and support. The Therapeutic Community found its way from Great Britain into the U.S. correctional institutions less than fifty years ago. Today, the Therapeutic Community is embraced in at least one institution  in every state.  

You’re always welcome here. Call us, we welcome you to join us!
