As 2021 comes to an end, there is still time to give for clients like this:

Always thinking of others, this emergency shelter client asks staff to provide meals to every other resident before himself. He wants to be sure there is enough for everyone.

It is thanks to donors like you that this teenager received Christmas gifts for the first time in six years. These gifts helped the boy who is always thinking of those around him know that others are thinking of him too.

Jewelous came to City House at 18. Before being accepted into our Transitional Living Program he thought he would never be able to find a place to stay.

He is grateful that in his time here he “has more jobs, a great place to stay, and is treated with respect.”

Jewelous knows that once he leaves our program, he will be successful in whatever he chooses to do.

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
