Since 2011 Crossroads volunteers have been collaborating with community agencies and acupuncture educators from Mexico, Canada and the US to facilitate capacity building programs for health workers in the border region. These programs have yielded thousands of free treatments for the public. Services are provided primarily in impoverished border neighborhoods and colonias where many people have no access to any medical care.
Outcomes of the Crossroads Border Project
Aug 2011-June 2013
- 20,000+ treatments: provided in low income neighborhoods, and within self help groups for people affected by violence
- Over 20 community healing centers: autonomously funded community based projects
- 86 health providers trained
- Outcomes study underway through the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine
How you can support
As a social enterprise committed to reducing health disparities in our region, Crossroads will continue to support these ongoing capacity building programs. We want the Las Cruces community to be a part of this. There are several ways you can support the growth of these services.
1. Get acu yourself = help others have more access to acu
The easiest way is to come for a treatment at Crossroads Community Acupuncture in downtown Las Cruces 125 N. Main. For every treatment you pay for at Crossroads, on our sliding scale of $16-$41, we will invest $1 towards future capacity building programs. By receiving acupuncture treatments yourself, and inviting others to also come receive a treatment, at the same you’ll also be assisting your neighbors in the border region.

2. Donation only acu days
Be on the lookout for donation only acupuncture sessions we periodically offer at our Crossroads clinic, at the Mountainview Food Coop and Tesoro Integrative Health Center in Las Cruces, as well as other community centers in the Las Cruces/El Paso border region. Proceeds will benefit the growth of these clinics. You can receive updates on these specials by following our blog, our facebook page, or to subscribe to our E-newsletter, “Borderland Acu” (subscription is free, just email us at email@example.com).
3. Purchase Fair Trade weavings, pinatas, prayer flags, and more!
Crossroads is selling a variety of fair trade products made in Mexico. They are available at the farmer’s market every Saturday 8-12 on South Main, and at our downtown clinic 130 S. Main Tues through Thurs 11-7, Fri 11-2 and Sat 9-1. A portion of all proceeds from fair trade sales benefits the Crossroads Border Project. Learn more about the various products
