EXPANSION OF SERVICES TO WESTERN, NEW YORK
Families at a Crossroad is expanding its outreach and mission to Western, N.Y. The organization, a non-for-profit, that presently serves families in the North Country, provides permanent housing, mentorship, economic independence, therapy, early childhood education, and daycare for families.
Families recognizes that the exponential growth of domestic violence, the opioid epidemic, and
communities suffering from economic stagnation, are the primary cause of families in trauma. Families provides a holistic approach to addressing their need to heal.
“Families struggle to cope with pain and trauma - particularly the children - all are affected negatively,. Our mission is to provide the tools for families to heal. Whether it be long-term housing, adult educational training, early childhood education, speech, occupational or behavioral therapy, we can reach families in a meaningful way,” said Joy Opoku, spokesperson for Families at a Crossroad
