Gas Card Assistance

Community Support Network Inc. (CSNI), along with the Institute on Disability, has provided gas gift cards to our Family Support Council. The purpose of these gift cards is to assist families with the cost of gas as it relates to healthcare access for individuals we serve. If you are interested and need this additional assistance, please contact your Family Support Coordinator or Service Coordinator. These cards will be provided on a first come first serve basis to those in need.

About the Family Support Council

The Community Crossroads Family Support Council (FSC) is an advisory board to the Community Crossroads agency to support, educate, and empower families. Families helping families is the best way to describe this group of volunteers. The Council has chosen the following leaders, Kimberly Habib as Chair, Jen Dabrowski as Vice–Chair. Christine Reynolds is currently our Family Support Council liaison. The FSC usually meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM. Members volunteer at Community Crossroads’ events and serve on agency committees.

Some of the accomplishments the Council achieved in previous years include: teamed up with our region’s Partners In Health Council to offer more activities and trainings for families; partnered with our Family Support Department to fund activities and trainings; sponsored Sound Healing events with the Soundscapers; sponsored family yoga sessions; hosted NH Healthy Families MCO Forum; allocated funding to support individuals to attend Direct Service Provider (DSP) training; participated in Community Crossroads’ Redesignation Survey; funded individuals to attend NH Leadership, sponsored families to attend Family Support Conference, and Enrichment Program Grants for over 270 individuals.
