Crossroads wouldn't be able to operate without our amazing, committed volunteers. Please review the volunteer position descriptions below (particularly the rquirements of each job). Contact information for each location is listed at the bottom of this page.

Crossroads Urban Center

Food Pantry: The emergency food pantry occasionally needs volunteers to help box food orders. This opportunity requires only a minimal amount of training. We also recruit volunteers as intake workers. This requires extensive training and a long-term commitment. These volunteer positions have openings ocassionally, but not on an ongoing basis.

Advocacy: Volunteers interested in engaging in advocacy work with federal, state, and local officials are welcome to contact us to see if there are any opportunities available. We are particularly in need during the State Legislative Session. Anyone can help us by talking to public officials, but volunteers who want to get more deeply involved should have experience in public policy advocacy. These positions are best suited for college students who can make a commitment of least one semester.

Thrift Store

The Crossroads Thrift Store frequently needs assistance in sorting incoming clothing donations. These positions require very little training and are well suited for those who need to fulfill a minimal amount of community service hours.
