Volunteers needed for direct resident care, office work, fundraising, grounds keeping and cleaning and organizing. We are always looking for bakers as well.

Crossroads House is an alternative to a hospital or nursing home stay when care can no longer be provided in a patient’s own home. It is a comfort care home serving Genesee and Wyoming counties, with the staff and trained volunteers providing care to those who have been medically determined to be in the last three months of their lives. Volunteering here
allows you to put love into action. It opens hearts and fosters understanding, compassion and cooperation among individuals. Don’t forget to look us up on Facebook at Crossroads House Batavia!
