"Volunteers are not paid -- not because they are worthless,
but because they are priceless" Unknown
Volunteers are a critical component to Crossroads' operation and to those we serve. We depend on volunteers to perform a variety of functions, such as:
Board of Trustees
Crossroads Crisis Center is under the direction of a Board of Trustees who enhance the foundational strength of our agency. Board members are chosen according to the agency's By-laws and are responsible for effective implementation of Crossroads' mission.
Shelter program volunteers undergo a rigorous training wherein they are trained in all aspects of the shelter operations. After training, they may work directly with victims and/or their children, be responsible for shelter coverage and security, answer crisis phone calls, give information and referrals, process intakes, work with the support groups, assist in child care, work with youth and children's programs, shop for groceries and supplies, assist with transportation and provide general office support.
In order to consistently provide quality services for the growing numbers of people seeking help, Crossroads needs a strong financial base. Community fundraising events are necessary to expand the dollars that are received through grants, United Way funds, foundations, donations, etc. Volunteers are needed to help contact donors, operate a fundraising campaign and work on special fundraising events.
Another way of contributing to Crossroads is by physically working on the house, garage and yard. Volunteers can help with repairs, cleaning, organizing, mowing, trimming, weeding, and general upkeep of the shelter.
