What is the Crossroads Border Project?
The Crossroads Border Project helps underserved groups in the border region establish and sustain their own community-supported health projects. We train local health promoters and counselors in cost-effective techniques such as acudetox/ear acupuncture. These providers operate and offer these therapies within a variety of self-help, addictions, medical and behavioral health programs, primarily within impoverished areas serving the mentally ill, the homeless, victims of violence, orphans, and addictions. Groups we have assisted include St. Luke’s Health Clinic at the Community of Hope and Alianza in Las Cruces and Desert Pride Academy for at-risk youth in Anthony, NM.
- Over 20,000 treatments provided since 2011 within community centers, women’s groups, homeless shelters, mental health programs, and orphanages
- 86 health promoters trained in ear acupuncture
- Over 20 community-supported ear acupuncture programs, offering care for low-income groups
What trainings does Crossroads offer for health promoters?
- Moxibustion (Modeled after Moxafrica‘s program for health promoters treating Tuberculosis)
- Acudetox or the NADA ear acupuncture model (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) for trauma, stress, addictions and psychiatric illness
How you can support
As a social enterprise committed to reducing health disparities in our region, we want the Las Cruces community to be able to contribute to our project. There are several ways you can support.
1. Donate through Paypal by using your credit card.
A tax-deductible receipt can be offered upon Crossroads’ approval from the IRS as a 501c3 non-profit organization, currently under review. We anticipate these receipts will be ready to offer to donors by July 2014. Please contact us for questions about donations.
2. Donation only acu days
Be on the lookout for donation only acupuncture sessions we periodically offer at our Crossroads clinic. Proceeds will benefit the Border Project. You can receive updates on these specials by following our blog, our facebook page, or to subscribe to our E-newsletter, (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 artisan 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 Monday through Saturday. A portion of all proceeds from fair trade sales benefits the Crossroads Border Project. Currently we have on display and for sale at our clinic the paintings of patients participating in an art therapy program for people with psychiatric illness. Learn more about the various products
4. Get acu yourself = help others have more access to acu
The easiest way to support the Crossroads Border Project is to come for a treatment at Crossroads Acupuncture in downtown Las Cruces 130 N. Main. We re-invest our surplus revenues into our capacity building program. 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.
