Crossroads e-Newsletter
  June 2013    

Happy Summer! This month, we're excited to share with you a video that captures our work with pregnant and postpartum women beautifully. We are also offering our popular aftercare and dialectical behavioral therapy groups in Kennebunk starting on July 10th.


If you missed Crossroads clinical director Shannon Trainor on the Growing Up Chaotic Show, you can listen to the recording on our blog. Shannon and Dawn dove into the topic of gender-focused treatment. If you are curious at all about what we do and why we do it, it's a must listen!


Crossroads Launches Video for Pregnant and Postpartum Women Program

In last month's newsletter, we reported an 86.7% completion rate for our grant-funded program for pregnant and postpartum women. Our enhancements to our Children And Mothers Program (CAMP) have really made a difference!


This month, we're proud to share with you a video, produced by Laki Vazakas, that beautifully illustrates the work being done at the Boulton Center for Women and Children and at our halfway house. Our hope is that you will watch, learn and share to help us spread the word about our innovative program for pregnant and postpartum women.
