Volunteers are the backbone of Crossroads. We are blessed to have had 113 volunteers in 2016 work with our clients to provide a listening ear and the gift of hope.

  • “I was fortunate enough to spend 1/2 day in Dec 2016 volunteering at Crossroads in Detroit. Our team of about 30 people had such a great time contributing to the organization of the clothing and personal supplies rooms. In fact, I brought a group of 6 clients back with me in January 2017 for more work and fun. This place makes a huge difference in our fellow Detroiters lives and its continued success is important to all of us!”

  • “Crossroads is an incredible organization that turns the seemingly impossible into an attainable goal. Crossroads volunteers display the utmost of class and professionalism with warm, welcoming arms. I am extremely humbled to have been a part of this experience and hope that I will get an opportunity to work with them in the future.”

  • “The reason I volunteer at Crossroads is to serve the people who are pretty much forgotten by society. To give them a voice that says ‘I exist.’
