Plymouth Crossroads is a 501(c)(3)  transitional housing shelter which provides a safe place to call home for abused, runaway and homeless young men ages 16-20. The program is designed to not only provide shelter for these young men, but to also help them get enrolled in school or a GED program and find local employment.  Plymouth also provides extensive case management and group meetings to teach important life skills that are essential to the residents’ success in society. Since its opening in 2011 it has helped 80 boys to not fall under the statistic of becoming homeless.

Presale tickets are available for $12 and may be purchased online at or by calling 716-393-3906. Tickets at the door will be $15. Sponsorship opportunities are available for local businesses. Donations are also requested for the basket raffle.
