Crossroads e-Newsletter
  December 20, 2011    

Wow. What a busy couple of months it has been! Crossroads Greater Portland Counseling Center and administrative services is settling into its new location in Scarborough. We're in the middle of our annual giving campaign, and we've recently honored an amazing clinician and friend for her 10+ years of dedication to Crossroads.

Looking ahead, we are happy to announce Crossroads' first Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for men. The IOP will start on January 23rd in our Scarborough office and will be offered Monday through Thursday from 5:00pm -8:00pm. (You can find more information on our re-designed website.)

You may also be reading about the cuts to MaineCare and DHHS the governor has recently proposed. These proposed cuts would affect Crossroads and its clients severely. Three halfway house clients testified last week in Augusta to let the Joint Standing Committee on Appropriations and Financial Affairs know just how much Crossroads has helped them and other clients. Look for more information on how you can help in future newsletters or on our Facebook page.


For now, Happy Holidays!

Crossroads Greater Portland Counseling Center and administrative offices are now located in Scarborough at 71 US Route One, Suite E. While we will miss being in the Old Port, we are so much happier with the ample parking and new, modern offices! And it's super easy to get to via RTP or ShuttleBus.

If you have a few moments, please take a look at some photos of the new office on our Flickr page. We look forward to treating men and women at our new outpatient office for years to come.

Sometimes, a person comes along that makes a profound impact on an organization. Crossroads recently celebrated the contributions of an amazing clinical staff member who, over the past 10+ years, has helped shape the agency to what it is today.


Faith Sheehan, LCSW, CCS has meant so much to so many people at Crossroads, from clients to staff members. Faith will no longer be working with Crossroads, and her presence will be missed.

Thanks for everything, Faith!
