Cross Roads House

Since 1982 Cross Roads House has been providing emergency and transitional shelter to homeless men, women, and children in the NH Seacoast area. With 96+ beds, we are guided by our mission, to meet the immediate needs of homeless families and individuals, and to provide them with the tools and guidance they need to successfully return to permanent housing.

Cross Roads House is dedicated to employing comprehensive solutions to ending homelessness. We provide the most basic needs - safe shelter and three meals a day (prepared and served by volunteers) - as well as access to telephone, mail, internet, and laundry, to all residents. Our direct care staff works to provide the support and services residents need to succeed, and are onsite, 24/7/365. Beyond the basics - a warm bed, nourishing meals, and caring assistance delivered by staff - our highly skilled social work team provides case management to all residents. Cross Roads House also provides a host of supportive services that address the root causes of homelessness, build resident skill sets, and instruct residents how to obtain and maintain permanent employment and housing.
