Crossroads for Women was able to raise $5,000 in its first annual online auction fundraiser, and we couldn't have done it without you! This money will allow us to replace the siding on one of our buildings in Windham, a much-needed project that has been postponed for too long.Online Auction image A project that will help us continue to create the safe, comfortable environment our clients count on when they come through our doors.

In addition to raising funds, we also expanded our community by connecting with new supporte
rs from Maine all the way to Washington state!

Thank you, again, to all who contributed to the auction by donating items, bidding on items, or simply helping to spread the word for us. With your help, we can continue to raise awareness of the work we
do addressing substance abuse and mental health so that women and their families can lead healthy lives.

Being our first auction, we learned a lot from the process. If you have any feedback about the auction, good or bad, we'd love to hear from you - email or call Jen at 207.773.9931, ext. 128.

Crossroads group at the Silver Tea
Governor John Baldacci proclaimed May 17 - 23 "Celebrating Women in Recovery Week" at the annual Silver Tea on May 20th. Held at the Blaine House in Augusta, the tea honors courageous women who make a difference in their own lives and recognizes their contributions to others in the journey of addiction.

The Blaine House was packed with women in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction as well as supporters of recovery, treatment and prevention of alcohol and drug addiction. Those in attendance represented more than 400 combined years of addiction recovery. Certainly, testimony that addiction treatment does indeed work!

Included in the audience were staff membNikki Oliverers and clients from Crossroads for Women's halfway house. Our own Nikki Oliver, program manager at the halfway house, was recognized for being nominated as a leader for women in recovery. It was a great way for women of all ages and backgrounds to connect. It was also a great way for women new to recovery to see that long-term recovery is possible.
