Welcome to Crossroad Women and Family Services! Thank you for stopping by our website today. We're excited that you have taken the opportunity to learn more about us, what we do and who we serve. It's October and we're almost entering the close of another year. We will never forget 2020 is a year that everything changed. We're still blessed. We're still shifting. We're still overcoming. We're still breaking cycles. Identifying and removing barriers. Getting out of our own way.
From the death of George Floyd and many others to the COVID-19 Public Health Crisis touching the United States of America and the nations. 2021 we're focusing on healing and recovery for chronic disease and healthcare disparities. Deaths and funerals.. It's never easy losing someone you love. Healing isn't a one time event. The process takes place over a period of time. We can't rush the process. We must trust the process and reach out for help and support when needed.
We're making our way back from church buildings and school closings. We learned how to navigate online glitches and pivot using new tools, new ways of learning, being and doing. Yes, emotional and mental warfare, fear, depression, anxiety and isolation, suicidal thoughts were challenging for millions. The food insecurity and hunger, fear of losing housing and facing homelessness was devastating for many. Job loss, paycheck insecurity, loss of opportunities and family healthcare coverage isn't something anyone thinks about. However, many have been able to obtain coverage and receive assistance.
Daily many waited for news about the safety and well-being of institutionalized loved ones in jails, prisons, juvenile detention centers, hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. However, despite the tests, natural disaster, plagues, diseases, death, locust, hail storms, fires, floods, violence, infrastructure and economic challenges we're still here.
We've been blessed with supernatural provision, divine safety, evidence-based measures and guidelines for our health, wellbeing and protection. Everyday that we open our eyes is a "good day". Because someone did not. That person could live next door, around the corner, across town or in another country. Families are suffering from grief and sorrow.
Today your situation could change for the better. It is also a day you could face adversity. In life we will experience both.

That's truly what is means to be "In this together". Now more than ever it's a great opportunity to LEAD the change.
We can recover. We can rebuild. We can restore. We can break the chains of depression, fear, anxiety, worry, isolation.
