This week, our clients shared the spirit of the season by making waffles and cards for the warming station guests. Because they’ve needed warm shelter and food too. Our clients hope breakfast and encouraging words can make a difference in the life of someone going through a similar situation. ❤️

Our kids are with us for a reason. Their version of home involves abuse and neglect, where basic needs are a luxury. We work hard to redefine what home for the holidays really means for all our clients. We are their lifeline when they need it most. A place to be themselves and just be a kid.

Our clients never imagined being in a shelter or needing shelter for the holidays. We need your help to continue our mission, to lift them up and make their holidays brighter. Your support this holiday season would mean so much.

We are very thankful for our incredible partners!

GDT chose City House as the beneficiary of their annual chili cookoff. Last week we stopped by to meet their team and tour their amazing office space. Their energy and giving spirit really inspired us!

We also loved seeing our friends at People Who Love People! City House occasionally works alongside them to provide food packs in the DART parking lot near the Parker Rd station. Our goal is to look for homeless youth who may come there for food and other services. This past Thursday, we met a 14-year-old and his mom who are often homeless and on the streets in Dallas. City House was happy to help them in their time of need.

We are truly better together! Learn how you can make an impact at cityhouse.org.

We wanted to personally invite you and your friends and family to my kick off party for for Frisco City Council! I sure hope you can make it!

I have no way to ever express my gratitude for City House for immensely aiding in my personal growth below:

I have a really crazy and messed up life journey that i have faught and survived from, but I have no issue telling you the story with a smile on my face and walk through the different extreme situations along with the multitude of emotions I felt to help better understand who I am and what I let build me rather than define me. It made me realize that I have no problem telling my life story and calmly tell about my fatal incidents with enthusiasm even though I've been close to death and severely injured and wasnt able to even think of these memories without choking up or shutting down for years but I have just now realized that Im only able to casually discuss this because I forgave my abusers, not for them but to free myself of hate and anger towards them and the world. It also helped me learn, acknowledge and accept my own self hatred caused by LIES like whole heartedly believing it was my fault (even though I was child) and put no fault upon my offenders. Then gradually destroyed the invasive lies and steadily turned my hatred into self love. I was a victim, but today I'm no victim, I have made myself a SURVIVOR with a strong will to fight for my voice to be heard, sustaining my new-found self respect and knowing I deserve this life. I am a worthy, very loved, and a well supported individual. Making this the first time in 10 years I'm not hurting anymore. Thank you to my victimizers, for my incredible strength that derived originally from my painful injuries and fear. Today it all clicked and made me feel accomplished and needed to share and inspire a willingness to keep fighting!
This week on “Someone You Should Know” with Stuart Sax you will meet a lady with sixteen teenage children!! Sheri Messer, Executive Director of City House, is like a mother to at risk teens that have been removed from toxic environments either by referral or by choice. Join us this Friday at 10am (CT) on kvgiradio.com, on the KVGI Radio mobile app or live on Facebook/KVGI Radio. Every community needs someone like this week’s guest!!
Thanks for the tour CITY House. Hope to partner with you soon!
Last year I started writing down things I really wanted to happen in my life. Top of that list, was to fix my smile.

17 years of drug and alcohol abuse left my teeth in terrible shape. Years of sobriety are a huge gift but you can’t really undo the damage you do to your teeth.

But this may be the very first extremely clear evidence I’ve ever personally experienced that clear cut goals written down and planned become reality.

I still have a lot of work to get done but after all these years, I’ve made significant progress and I’m still just so happy about it.

I love to laugh and I wanna smile as often as humanly possible. You don’t need a great smile for that, but I’m thankful to feel a little more comfortable today than I used to. And I’m astounded at what happens when a plan comes to life.
Hi! I work for a non-profit organization called Education Travel & Culture. We are currently looking for a volunteer host family for one of our students from Brazil that has a passion for music and playing the guitar. I was hoping you could maybe ask around and see if you know anyone that might be interested in hosting?! Thank you!!! – This is an amazing opportunity to cultural exchange! Please send me an email [email protected]
I will be glad to provide more details! Thank you for your help! Silvia
