The Board of Directors of Crossroads Youth & Family Services has the authority and legal and moral responsibility for the operation and funding of the agency.
Crossroads’ Board consists of representatives who reflect the geographic, economic, cultural, social, and other appropriate areas served by Crossroads YFS and who volunteer their time for this purpose. The Board includes at least one person with a background in fiscal management, one with expertise in early childhood education, and a licensed attorney.
Board meetings are held at 6:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month at Crossroads’ corporate offices at
1333 W. Main Street in Norman, Oklahoma.
Another Board position is reserved for a member of the Head Start/Early Head Start Policy Council, to be elected by the Council in September and seated in October of each year. Crossroads’ Policy Council is required by federal rules governing the Head Start program, and its purpose is to participate in shared decision-making with the Board of Directors and the agency’s administration for the efficient and effective provision of Head Start services.
It consists of both Head Start and Early Head Start parents elected by local parent groups and community representatives elected by the Policy Council.
