peoplePlanning Now, Moving Ahead

Crossroads is in the process of finding a new home. While this happens Mark and Jan have opened their home for hospitality and small events. Contact us today for more information.


Crossroads Life Center's mission is to serve internationals in the Ithaca area by:

  1. Offering Hospitality - a home-away-from-home.
  2. Building Community - connecting individuals with the community.
  3. Creating Opportunity - Crossroads provides an opportunity for graduate students, visitingprofessors, and their families as well as our local community to gather and find solace in a homey atmosphere. Many of these individuals are the future leaders of our global community. They are students involved in all kind of fields. Each with his/her own amazing story to tell.

At Crossroads our purpose is to make a difference not only in the lives of students and visiting professors but also for the family members who accompany them. grads

We regularly hear back from individuals that they are profoundly grateful for the personal connections made with the Crossroads community. Through this website we are continuing these life long relationships.

The Bible says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself.” This universal truth is our motivation. It defines the common ground we cherish and directs us into living and serving cooperatively amongst our diverse communities.

Thank you for being a part of this community.


Directors & Founders: Mark and Jan Chandler
