We are pleased to announce that the Delray Beach Drug Task Force corporate partner, The Home Depot – Delray Beach, and the Home Depot Foundation has awarded a supply and labor grant to help update fixtures, repaint walls, redo gutters, repaint exterior, replace part of the vinyl floor, and add mulch for the landscape at The Crossroads Club. This grant includes supplies and labor.
Over 800 people a day walk through the doors of The Crossroads Club to participate in meetings that help sustain long-term recovery outcomes. Since 1982, the club has served as a safe haven for anyone whose life has been affected by substance use disorder. Open seven days a week, meetings of several 12-step fellowships are held here. The Crossroads Club also supports prevention education within Palm Beach County Schools through its Living Skills In the Schools (LSIS) program, which has served over 116,000 since its seventeen-year inception.
This is not the first time The Home Depot – Delray Beach has shown its support to the recovery community. Last year, the Home Depot became the first corporate partner to join Project Trailblazer, an initiative founded by the Delray Beach Task Force to positively impact the economic architecture of Delray Beach and improve long-term recovery outcomes. The Home Depot recently held its first job fair at the Crossroads club with much success in opening up employment opportunities and helping to reduce stigma and shame.
Thank you to The Home Depot Foundation and The Home Depot – Delray Beach store for their commitment to help rebuild the lives of those who have been affected by substance use disorder.
