Thank you, CDPHP!

8.19.21 Update on this gift!

It’s hard to know what the year would have held for us without the help of CDPHP, but we can imagine it would have been exceedingly more difficult financially.

It’s the last week of ESY (Extended School Year, aka Summer Session) here. The support of our program by CDPHP means so much to us. It’s been a challenging 18 months for sure, and this past school year has been “different,” but we’ve made it through, with your help and that of others who care about our students.

Approximately half of the students will be moving on to Kindergarten in September or to their next schools. Others will be returning and moving up to new classrooms and we’ll welcome a new batch of learners to start making real progress on important skills. The impact of this gift has been on each and every student, as we’ve used their funds to help improve many areas, from ensuring we have excellent team members in place to work with our special students, to building our curricular resources, to help in transforming the Clinic space to provide more privacy and individual space for sessions. This money and encouragement have been a miraculous life-saver to us, in a critical time when we’ve had to divert so much funding to cover costs related to covid.
As we head into fall, we want to say thank you again to CDPHP and all others who have stayed in our corner through thick and thin.
thank you

12.23.2020 A Holiday Gift from CDPHP!

The call came later in the afternoon, a phone tag finally caught up. After initial greetings were exchanged, Victoria Hostig, Director, Community Relations & Executive Director, CDPHP The Foundation started off by saying that this year has been hard on non-profits, that it’s been hard on schools. She told of how at CDPHP The Foundation they knew it must have been especially hard on Crossroads, on the students, families, and team.

Indeed, Crossroads has been challenged, not only by the necessity of revamping our services and delivery of them with new and heightened safety protocols and policies, but also tremendously by the extra expenses it is taking to run the organization.

Continuing, Victoria gave the news that because of this, they at CDPHP The Foundation wanted to help us with another gift, one in addition to the grant we’d received as recently as October. This astonishing announcement produced a series of shrieks and screams, and, yes, tears. What an incredible gift to help Crossroads carry out its work.

With fervent gratitude for this amazing surprise, we send our thanks to CDPHP. We are truly blessed to have their steadfast and compassionate year-round support. Hear directly from CDPHP’s Victoria Hostig about why they are proud to help our organization!


10.20.2020 For the third year in a row, CDPHP is coming to our side! 

COVID-19 took the world by storm last winter and spring, and doing just about everything has become more complicated and expensive. That’s why we’re so thrilled to have received a $2,500 grant to help us with our new health and safety protocols. This area of expense related to being open for in-person services has increased significantly this year.

As found on the CDPHP website:

A Good Corporate Citizen: CDPHP is more than just a top-quality New York health plan; we’re also your neighbor. That’s why we take our responsibility to support and promote the health, vibrancy, and education of the communities we serve seriously.

We agree! We are deeply grateful for this partnership and for all that CDPHP does, not only for us but also for the other non-profits in our community.
