Mission Statement

At Cross Roads House:

We protect men, women and children of the Greater Seacoast area experiencing homelessness from exposure and hunger.

We provide secure, transitional shelter for those seeking to break the cycle of homelessness.

We support individuals and families by providing them with the opportunity to move with dignity and purpose to stable and decent housing.

We're local people helping each other.

Cross Roads House opened its doors in 1982 to assist homeless individuals and families. We have since become the largest emergency and transitional shelter in New Hampshire, serving eastern New Hampshire and southern Maine. We currently house up to 96 people on any given night, and our emergency shelter is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Cross Roads House offers food, shelter, and a proven program that helps our residents achieve their goal of independent and sustainable housing. In fact, the majority of people who have participated in our transitional program leave Cross Roads House for permanent housing, equipped with tangible goals and the skills to achieve them.
