  November 2012     

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! This month, we are offering Wreaths for Recovery, a joint fundraiser with Milestone Foundation that is also being used as a treatment tool for our clients. We also have some program updates to share. 

As we gear up for Christmas and Hanukkah, we hope you will consider a gift to Crossroads. You can donate via our secure Donor Tools website or send a check to Crossroads, 71 US Route One, Suite E, Scarborough, ME 04074. 
holiday wreath


Crossroads and Milestone Foundation are teaming up to decorate and sell festive wreaths this holiday season in various locations around Portland and Old Orchard Beach, Maine.


We are getting our clients involved, using the "Wreaths for Recovery" project as a treatment tool.


Clients from the Crossroads halfway house and Milestone extended care facility are working together throughout the whole process, from decorating the wreaths to the sales and marketing. The experience is a team-building activity that also teaches them how to run a seasonal business.

Proceeds from Wreaths for Recovery sales will benefit substance abuse programming for men and women.


The 22" Maine balsam wreaths can be purchased for $20.00. Proceeds of the wreath sales will benefit Crossroads and Milestone Foundation substance abuse treatment programs directly.


Check our blog for an updated list of locations to buy the wreaths from now until mid-December. 


Those interested in purchasing wreaths that cannot make it to the locations or  may need a larger order, may contact Nikki at to make other arrangements. {Download an order form}
