Crossroads Safehouse

October 25th, 2011

10-25-11Vicki Lutz, Executive Director of Crossroads Safehouse in Fort Collins, Colorado took the time to meet with me on very short notice. I called the morning of my arrival and talked with Laura Williams, Volunteer Coordinator at this Domestic Violence Center, in existence for 30 years. She helped arrange today’s meeting. Vicki walked me through this beautiful facility which opened just over a month ago. I could see the pride in Vicki as she talked about all aspects of acquiring this former nursing home and transforming it into this state-of-the-art facility which will now house families, displaced because of Domestic Violence.
Crossroads Safehouse has received a grant to help families throughout the State of Colorado who have been made homeless because of Domestic Violence. They will be obtaining a vehicle to transport families to their facility from all corners of the state, helping them to build lives without violence.
I was able to meet most of the staff as we walked through the “neighborhoods” as they are called in this facility. Gayle, Pat and Mary Anne took the time to talk with me as well and then were nice enough to pose for today’s picture. Thank you to everyone who work hard to help those in desperate need of help. You are making a huge difference in people’s lives. For more detailed information, visit their website at; www.crossroadssafehouse.org
