Hosting a fundraiser for Crossroads with your friends, coworkers or community is a great way to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.

About Hosted Fundraisers

    Fundraising success stories

    Providence College Against Domestic Violence

    Through Providence College Against Domestic Violence, our friend Vicky created a fitness event focused on survivors of Domestic Violence. During her event, attendees were empowered to tell their stories and participated in power-building exercises. Vicky and her community were able to raise thousands of dollars for survivors in Crossroads Domestic Violence Program!

    Performance Physical Therapy

    Every month, Performance Physical therapy hosts a dress down day to benefit a cause of their choice. Crossroads is grateful to have been the beneficiary of this effort, which raises money for individuals and families participating in Crossroads programs!
