Portsmouth Regional Hospital CEO Dean M. Carucci, recently presented a check for $5,000 to Cross Roads House Executive Director, Martha Stone. Cross Roads House provides secure, transitional shelter and a proven program that helps residents move with dignity and purpose to stable and decent housing.

“Cross Roads House is very grateful for this generous contribution from Portsmouth Regional Hospital. Three quarters of our operating support comes from private donations and we appreciate the hospital’s commitment to helping us meet the needs of some of the most vulnerable members of our community who are experiencing homelessness,” said Stone.

“Portsmouth Regional Hospital is very pleased to be able to support the mission of Cross Roads House,” said Carucci. He added, “We take very seriously our commitment to the community we serve and are proud to be able to provide much needed funding during these challenging winter months”.

The mission of Cross Roads House is to provide for the immediate needs of homeless families and individuals and to provide them with the tools and guidance they need to return to permanent housing. With just under 100 beds, the shelter is open and staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Last year, Cross Roads House served approximately 22,000 hot nourishing meals to shelter residents.
