Double Your Impact!

Make a donation during the $75,000 Matching Gift Challenge

Cross Roads House is thrilled to announce, starting on Friday, April 30th, your gift to Cross Roads House will go twice as far towards helping families and individuals experiencing homelessness find a way home!

A generous member of the Cross Roads House giving community who wishes to remain anonymous will be matching gifts 1:1 for the first $75,000 in contributions received during this challenge. Donations can be made on our secure website by clicking “Double My Gift” below, or mailed to: 600 Lafayette Road, Portsmouth, NH 03801. All donors who make an online contribution in the first week of this challenge (April 30-May 7), will be automatically entered into a drawing to win one of two $150 Runner’s Alley gift certificates. 

If you have not given to Cross Roads House already this year, now is the time! Donations made during this challenge will help us reach, and even exceed, our goal of raising more than $1 million from private funding sources by our fiscal year-end on June 30, 2021! Your support is critically important to ensuring we remain ready to respond when families and individuals experiencing homelessness need assistance.

Trudy (pictured above) was one of 135 Cross Roads House residents to move from homelessness to stable housing in 2020.

Cross Roads House is committed to helping the hundreds of men, women, and children who walk through our doors seeking emergency shelter and supportive services every year, but we can only do this with your help. We rely on the generosity of people like you to provide lifesaving assistance to some of our most vulnerable neighbors. Double your impact today by making a gift during our $75,000 Matching Gift Challenge!

Please click “Double My Gift” below to make a financial donation. Your support will have a lasting impact in the lives of families and individuals in the Seacoast Area who are experiencing homelessness.
