Welcome to Crossroad Women and Family Services, Inc. a 501(c) (3) charitable organization established by Patrina Wright- Torres to help women and children at a "crossroad" find a NEW direction. While serving her community as a newspaper journalist and freelance writer she was being called to something but didn't know what. She had written a book and enjoyed speaking at conferences and meetings but often felt that her work wasn't finished. She wanted to help heal broken hearts and change lives so she returned to school to become an ordained minister, certified temperament counselor and life coach.
It was during this season that her sensitivity to families experiencing crisis was heightened. Chance meetings with homeless women and children living on the streets, within local faith communities and social services wasn't taken lightly. As stories of emotional, physical, sexual victimization increased so did her passion to do something.
Her compassion to help meet needs not being adequately addressed or respected within her local community among women and families, children with disabilities, low-income and disadvantaged households moved her to action.
Additionally, while pursuing her studies and conducting research she begin connecting the dots between childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence. Her childhood secrets and unhealed scars begin to surface. Facing truth about her own trauma and present problems couldn't be ignored. She choose to journey towards holistic healing and recovery and begin writing books to help others do the same. Today, she is teaching, training, counseling and coaching others to discover their purpose and fulfill their life's greatest potential. As a sought after teacher, speaker, corporate trainer and transformational leadership coach she teaches people how to create a life they were born to live, fulfill a greater purpose and make good transitions.
Human beings were CREATED to overcome the "WHY" behind the years of depression, low-self esteem, fear and anxiety. We can find freedom from addiction and promiscuity, anger and resentment. We can live healed and whole.
We're excited to deliver life-changing message of healing at churches, high schools, colleges, TV shows, correctional facilities, prisons, training events, women's retreats and leadership conferences. You can do the same!
You are CALLED to LEAD.
You are CALLED to TEACH.
You are CALLED to HEAL.
You are CALLED to DREAM.
Leaders are birthed through adversity. Even if you are going through a challenging situation today on the other side of the pain, disappointment and adversity there is a treasure within you. Don't despise small beginnings. The right doors, right people, right places are waiting for you to arrive. After participating in the Neighborhood Leadership Initiative nine month fellowship Patrina wrote a grant to establish Crossroad Women and Family Services and her MISSION of serving hurting women, children and families became reality. Legal advocacy, counseling, job referrals, shelter transportation and emergency financial assistance helped families realize "No mother and child has to journey alone".
Do you envision a world where children can grow up happy, healthy and whole?
Are you concerned about hurting children and youth?
Do you believe education and employment can prepare youth to become productive citizens?
Do you believe children with unique needs, intellectual, learning disabilities, brain injuries are special?
We do too and we are PASSIONATE about helping communities move from a place of shame to grace and from brokenness to wholeness. While every women has the potential to rebuild her life, every women's journey is unique.
