We hope you are enjoying your summer so far. It's hard to believe we'll be thinking about Back to School soon! This month, we're sharing a great poem that our COO wrote for a SAMHSA conference she recently attended. We'd also like to thank a wonderful young Crossroads donor and tell you more about the Cape Cod Symposium on Addictive Disorders coming up in September. Finally, we're sharing a super easy way to support Crossroads while you shop online!

ArticleOneMaine, Summer Camp Re-envisioned

Polly Haight Frawley, COO and Project Director of Crossroads' $1.5 M federal SAMHSA grant for residential substance abuse treatment for pregnant and postpartum women, recently attended a conference in Washington DC. The conference was for grantees from across the county that are implementing this innovative model of providing family-centered services for women suffering from a substance abuse disorder.


Polly worked with SAMHSA officials on a presentation and facilitation to obtain input from grantees on how to document their work and tell their collective story to a national audience. In addition, as a separate part of the program, grantees were asked to submit a creative piece describing their work. 


Read the poem Polly wrote on the Crossroads blog.

ArticleTwoThanking a Young Crossroads Donor

A lovely little girl named Maddie recently stopped by Crossroads armed with a wonderful donation for the children at our Boulton Center for Women and Children in Windham


Maddie, who visited with her grandmother to deliver the donation in person, created gift bags with toys inside to donate to the children of Crossroads' Children and Mothers Program. Maddie's mother encourages her to go through her toys on a regular basis to consider donating to other kids in need. 


Thank you, Maddie!
