Cross Roads House – 40 Years of Doing the Work

By Lissa Gumprecht

Cross Roads House has been an advocate and a place of refuge for the homeless in the Seacoast community since modern homelessness emerged in our country in the 1980s. When a homeless man died from exposure in the winter of 1982 it ignited a passion in community leaders to make a difference in the lives of those most vulnerable in our community.

Since that time, Cross Roads House has established its home at 600 Lafayette Road and grown to be a leader in the fight to break the cycle of homelessness for the state of New Hampshire. What started as an opportunity to solve an immediate and emergent need has developed into a proven formula of success in working with individuals and families to stabilize, find housing and return to being thriving members of their communities.

Please take the time to watch this important video about who we are.
