Holiday Giving Opportunities at Cross Roads House

By Jessica Parker

During the holiday season, Cross Roads House presents each adult resident with a gift bag (families are sponsored separately). Please help us fill these gift bags by donating items from our Holiday Wish List below. In addition to providing gifts for our residents, financial donations are always needed to help fund shelter operations. Thank you for your generosity during this season of giving.

NEW THIS YEAR: You can shop our wish list without leaving your home! Check out our Amazon wish list at Order items online and have your donation shipped directly to the shelter. Increase your impact by going to and choosing Cross Roads House as your charity of choice!
