Cross Roads House opened its doors in 1982 to assist homeless individuals and families. They have since become the largest emergency and transitional shelter in New Hampshire, serving eastern New Hampshire and southern Maine. 2012 marked the 30th year that Cross Roads House has been providing shelter to the homeless in the Seacoast area. Cross Roads House predicts that they have provided over 500,000 nights of shelter to over 5,000 different people, and over 500 families. They currently house up to 96 people on any given night, and their emergency shelter is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Sean Tracey Associates has produced and donated a series of videos since 2005, which have been showcased at Cross Roads House’s annual fund raising events. STA’s films highlight the inspirational stories of residents’ lives and give the audience a chilling perspective of their reality. The videos have helped raise awareness, and funding for Cross Roads House, allowing for renovation of the new Cross Roads House building, which was completed in 2009. The video shot this year was unique, due to the fact that Cross Roads House was celebrating such a monumental anniversary. For this occasion, STA produced a video that shows a retrospective look at some of Cross Roads Houses’ former residents whose lives were transformed after their stay at the shelter. We are so proud to be associated with such a wonderful nonprofit organization and with such selfless people who go the distance to help their residents move with dignity and purpose from homelessness to stable and decent housing.
