Welcome to Crossroad Women and Family Services home on the web.

When Crossroad Women and Family Services begin in 2004 our MISSION was to help restore victims of crime, provide tools to help women and their children rebuild their lives and help reduce the risk through injury prevention, awareness, intervention and education.


While we're embarking upon our 20th year anniversary our mission will continue and our message is still based on equity, human rights, dignity, respect, ethical values and integrity.


We still believe in the power of compassion, advocacy, research and evidence-based problem solving. Together communities have the ability to connect the dots, lead the change and heal GENERATIONAL TRAUMA within their communities.

April is approaching and it is a special season for me. It is the month my family and I relocated back to the state of New Jersey after having resided in North Carolina. April is also bittersweet. It is the month of my father's birth and his untimely death. My father, Bishop James D. Wright, Sr. was a great man of faith, husband, father, grand-father, brother, uncle, cousin, neighbor and friend.


He and my mother, Pastor Margaret A. Wright were married for 58 years, raised six children, loved and served their grand-children and co-labored in marriage, family life and ministry.  My father loved family, church, work and people.

Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to connect with people who were grieving the lost of a parent, step-parent, grand-parent or sibling. Whether due to the long-term  complications associated with COVID-19 Pandemic, Stroke, Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease or COPD  unexpected or sudden death is never an easy experience to deal with. 

April is also Child Abuse Prevention Month and Second Chance Month. We're hosting Community Health & Wellness Workshops. 

Do you know someone who had a Heart Attack, Stroke, COPD, Chronic Kidney Disease, Cancer, Asthma, Sleep Orders?


We will be providing educational  resources to help communities live well. If your nonprofit, school, PTA, shelter, transitional housing, prison, jail or faith-community  is interested please email us at to express your interest.

I'd like to invite you to join me in making a donation to Crossroad Women and Family Services in behalf of a loved one or friend who passed away; someone that's been affected by the juvenile justice system/ incarceration or someone journeying towards healing the scars of abuse.

As always, thank you for your donation. Your partnership and support

will help us provide life changing assistance to women, children, elderly, disabled, families in need.
