Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Cross Roads House offers programs and services that address the root causes of homelessness and provide the support necessary for future success. We do this with intensive mentoring by our case managers, connecting residents with community based programs and services, and providing classes for residents that provide instruction in several topics that are crucial to finding and keeping a job and a home. These programs and services help to shorten resident lengths of stay and decrease the likelihood of recurring instances of homelessness.

The residents we serve often arrive with a multitude of challenges in addition to being homeless, which may include untreated mental illness and/or substance use disorder, no connection to physical or mental health care, no income, no ID, poor credit, budgeting issues, and difficulty navigating the complex process of applying for public assistance and/or housing assistance. Members of our Social Work Team, made up of a clinical Program Director, a master's level social worker, shelter and post-shelter case managers, and University of New Hampshire graduate and undergraduate social work interns, provide case management to all residents. Case managers meet residents “where they are" and assist them with creating individualized plans to help move from homelessness to a stable home. Case Managers work closely with the shelter's direct service staff and other service providers, to help residents move to safe, decent, and permanent housing in the most timely and successful way possible.
