A Legacy of Impact

Crossroads Safehouse was recently the beneficiary of an incredibly generous estate gift from an amazing woman and former volunteer named Stella See. 

We asked Stella’s family to share a bit more about their mother and her passion for service. 

She was an educator. She taught school at all levels. Grade school, junior and senior high school, and migrant schools. She was a reading specialist, ESL teacher, Spanish teacher, and also educational administrator.

Mom was a breast cancer survivor, diagnosed in 1998, and opted for a mastectomy because she didn’t have time for treatment! She loved to travel and visited many countries. After retiring she joined the Peace Corps and went to Honduras to teach teachers.

Along with volunteering at Crossroads Safehouse she read books for the blind through Front Range College, she volunteered with Homelessness Prevention through Plymouth Church. Her faith was strong and was a reader for her church, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.

She was always a busy person and enjoyed all her volunteer ’jobs’. She especially enjoyed helping women.

We chose Crossroads for a donation because of keeping women safe and helping them to better their lives, which is what mom believed.

Stella passed away in May of 2021 at 94 years old. We want to thank Stella’s family for supporting us as a way to honor her legacy of incredible service.
