Can Crossroads count on you to give this year?

Kristin R has learned a lot about herself at Crossroads. Through the halfway house program and regular outpatient counseling, she learned that she can make choices, her life can get better, and she’s not alone.

Can we count on you to give this year to help women like Kristin remember who they wanted to be?

Like many clients at Crossroads, Kristin’s life deteriorated severely when she turned to drugs. Today, through hard work and the support of Crossroads, Kristin has been able to build back her family relationships.

Crossroads has always put the primary focus on relationships through our gender-specific treatment approach. Understanding the way we, as individuals, connect with others and ourselves is an integral part of our well-being and Crossroads’ treatment philosophy.

There has been tremendous change at Crossroads this past year. Crossroads is now offering treatment for men in an outpatient setting using the same gender-specific approach.

This service expansion brings a number of important changes. We will be known simply as Crossroads. We have a mission update, along with a new logo and website re-design. We’ve moved our outpatient and administrative offices from Pearl Street in Portland to Scarborough, significantly reducing the costs of these programs. Our offices at Kennebunk Counseling Center have grown in size, and our residential intakes and admissions are now taking place in Windham. Read the memo from executive director Barbara Dacri about the recent changes.

What remains the same is our dedication to helping people – women, men, couples and families – lead healthier lives. Our therapy groups are gender-specific and our residential programs remain women-only.

Your gift will support the outpatient and residential programs that families in Maine have come to depend on. We’re very grateful for the incredible support of the community throughout the changes of this past year. We now encourage you to sustain our service by donating via our secure online giving website or by sending a check to Crossroads, attn: Lisa Merrill, 71 US Route One, Suite E, Scarborough, ME 04074.

Together, we can continue to help clients like Kristin remember who they wanted to be.
