fter many yearsof dreaming, itis finally a reality: amedical clinic atCrossroads Mission!We are extremely proud to be able to provide this muchneeded service to thecommunity andespecially to our guests. The openingof the Crossroads Mission Health Servicesarea is a testament to the power of acommunity, and of love and compassionat work.Our dreams of providing a wide rangeof
services is becoming a reality;dreams of having various professionalservices available right here at CrossroadsMission. Services such as dental exams,eye exams, and even hair care. As other members of our community join Dr.Smock in “Sharing the Love”, we willsoon make all these dreams a reality.Another one of our dreams is to reachout to our community at a moreinteractive level. To do this, we arecurrently working on the creation of several “radio programs”. These programs are based on the 12 steps of therecovery process and include biblicalcommentaries, interviews, and personaltestimonies. Once completed, they will beavailable on our website.We feel that these programs willgreatly increase the understanding of theamazing challenges and miracles thathappen at Crossroads on a daily basis.Little by little our dreams are becoming a reality. We are grateful toGod and to our many kind friends andsupporters for making them possible.

ith a little remodeling,some white paint, anda doctor on board theCrossroads Mission HealthServices opened its doors for thefirst time on WednesdayFebruary 16 at 9:00 a.m.Dr. David Smock, who has been in practice in the Yuma areasince the 1990’s, has partneredwith Crossroads in reaching outto the disadvantaged, thedisabled, and the disenfranchised by volunteering his services eachWednesday from 9:00 to 11:00a.m. He will be giving physicalexams to those leaving thedetoxification stage of theRecovery Program, pre-employment screenings for residents, and general servicesto those that need it, regardlessof health coverage.Travis Hedgling,a volunteer Registered Nurse, and Marcia Glass,an NAU-Social Work Program intern, are also part of the HealthServices team. Marciasets up appointmentsthroughout the week and helps peoplewith general questions, while Travis’nursing skills come in handy for general patient screenings prior to seeing the doctor.The clinic, which used to be the Renewed Life Programdormitory, is located inside the men’s shelter just off the lobby.Though it is still receiving its final touches, it already looks and feelslike a genuine medical facility. But for now, at Crossroads Missionit sure is nice to hear, “The doctor will see you now!”
