CRREW has remained active serving the NYC area, other areas impacted by 9/11 and people impacted by hurricanes in Louisiana.
CRREW has worked with many groups including the Red Cross, NOVA, Safe Horizon, Mt Sinai WTC Program, St Vincent's Hospital: WTC Healing Services and scores of community based groups.
CRREW is currently reaching out to people and communities impacted by the recent storm/ TROPICAL STORM Sandy.

Happy New Year!
CRREW has been steadily offering acupuncture, massage and other bodywork at sites that have been directly impacted as well as a site in Staten Island in St. George and a community center on the Lower East Side.
Please let us know if and when you may still have time. Practitioners from different groups are planning to do some wellness afternoons at some of the sites on weekends. Please let us know if this would interest you and if you would like to work with individuals or with small groups. Space is limited so we need to plan ahead.
We do need practitioners to offer their time on Staten Island on Tuesdays from 12-5 and be part of the team at the University Settlement Tues. 6-9 PM at 273 Bowery, at Houston, behind the Whole Foods.
