Welcome to Crossroad Women and Family Services, Inc. a 501 c3 non-profit community-based outreach ministry started by Rev. Patrina Wright. While employed as a newspaper reporter and earning her B.A. degree in Christian Counseling she recognized that the underlying causes of abuse were not being adequately addressed, understood or respected within her local community.
As reports of emotional, physical, sexual crimes increased so did her passion to make a difference. Consumed with a desire to stand in the gap she accepted the call to provide hope, help and healing to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Reducing the risk of child sexual abuse is crucial and can save lives. Children deserve to grow up happy, healthy and whole. By speaking at workshops, conferences and retreats Rev. Wright is making a difference. She speaks at churches, high schools, colleges, conferences and outreach ministries.
In 2004 Rev. Wright wrote a grant to help get started and has not looked back. Crossroad Women and Family Services has served hurting women, children and families who find themselves at a crossroad. Women with children received assistance with legal advocacy, counseling, job referrals, shelter transportation and emergency financial assistance. No woman, no child should have to journey alone.
Our Vision? Crossroad Women and Family Services, Inc. envisions a world where children can grow up happy, healthy and whole and hurting children and youth become productive citizens.
Imagine your spirit being been broken through years of abuse and oppression?
Imagine suicidal thoughts because you feel there is no way out?
Imagine wearing a smile on your face and dying on the inside?
Sexually abused children and battered women and families need support while journeying to healing. Moving from a place of shame to grace and from brokenness to wholeness a process. We believe in helping people who need a second chance and practical support to rebuild their lives with dignity.
We're living our vision of standing in the gap to provide programs to support the "holistic" healing of those who have experienced family violence, substance abuse, poverty and homelessness.
We're real people with real stories of having beat the odds seeking to empower others. Covered wounds don’t heal and time doesn't heal all wounds. We motivate and inspire others to embrace their process.
Families have suffered in silence for so long that they come to believe their lives are broken beyond repair. We're changing that image by rebuilding their self-esteem and self-confidence.
What We Do? We're working to break the cycle of misinformation, myths and misunderstanding through writing and publishing books, articles, public speaking, talk show appearances, training seminars and conferences. Need a speaker for your next event? Contact us.
People who are ready for change need a safe place to work through issues. We help clients get back on track. The emotional, psychological and spiritual chains of your past CAN be broken. Seeing lives restored, recovered and rebuilt from the inside out is our greatest joy!
In closing, we ask that you would consider partnering with us. We solicit your prayers and financial support. Join us as we help families rebuild their lives. What you make happen for others someone will make happen for you. Your contribution in any amount is 100% tax deductible. For questions or comments email firstname.lastname@example.org
