I am 100% more likely to get involved with justice work as a result of my time at CrossRoads, and in fact I already have.

Lori Hadorn-Disselkamp
Board Member

I believe in CrossRoads’ mission because in our world right now we’re so polarized and divided. It’s ‘us’ versus ‘them’ when it needs to be ‘us’. There’s no way to do that without relationships.

Sam Trotta
Former Retreatant

CrossRoads helped me open up to a lot of new experiences, whether it was volunteering, getting to know someone new, or just being myself around other people.
