Due to national, state and local directives regarding COVID-19, the in-office services provided by Guardian House have been suspended until further notice. Staff are working remotely during this time and providing virtual services when possible.

Our business hours are currently Mon-Fri, 10:00am–3:00pm.

We remain especially committed to the thousands of parents and children impacted by our mission and are focused on mitigating this heightened risk while keeping families connected. Safety remains our first priority.

Our therapeutic environment ensures children aren’t exposed to negative or violent interactions and can express genuine responses to both parents without “guilt.” Often, when there is a history of conflict, children don’t want to show happiness at seeing one parent for fear they will “hurt” the other parent. It is during this temporary, transitional, and traumatic time that families are most in need of the services provided by Guardian House.

A supervisor will be present at all times during the interaction between the parent and child(ren). The supervisor documents observed interactions and conversations during the visit; however, they do not record opinions or make recommendations. The supervisor is responsible to intervene and re-direct the non-custodial parent if policies are not being followed. The role of the supervisor is also to help facilitate, as needed, interaction and connections between the parent and child. Additionally, the supervisor can assist with parenting questions, like how to discipline with time-outs and how to change a diaper. Parents are encouraged to take our free Parenting Education class and can put to practice what they are learning during visitation. We understand that being supervised during visitation may feel uncomfortable at first, but parents and children typically adjust quickly to the situation.

The Esperanza Court provides transitional residential support to individuals enrolled in the Bexar County Human Trafficking Court. This Bexar County Specialty Court began operating in May 2014 with the aim of interrupting the cycle of prostitution, arrests and addiction that devastates the lives of women and men. Shortly after the court’s inception, Crosspoint agreed to add its proven model of transitional residential services to the court’s resources. Crosspoint’s Esperanza program provides a safe and secure residential experience for clients. The program is co-located in our Residential Reentry Center where that program’s structure and accountability rules provide clients positive support in their challenging transition. Esperanza clients who lack positive supports in the community need time to establish a stable foundation for independent growth and success. The Crosspoint program provides a safe haven from which Esperanza clients can take time to build their skills and resources as they prepare for a new life.
