This week, our kids at My Friend's House had the opportunity to go on a horse-drawn carriage ride to look at the twinkling lights at the Deerfield residences! Our Transitional Living Program young adults also had the opportunity to go last week and loved it. 🌟

Enrichment activities are very important to our clients in their healing journey. While a holiday-themed outing may not solve the complex issues these children face, it can contribute to their well-being by creating positive memories, forming a sense of community, and offering a reprieve from the challenges they may be confronting.

🌟 Joy begins with you this holiday season! 🌟

Our emergency shelter and transitional living houses are open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, including the holidays. The end of the year is a universally triggering time, and with a typical rise in family discourse, our clients turn to City House for a support system during the holidays. We were able to provide our clients with 2,133 hours of therapy in 2023, as of November, and we couldn't do it without your support.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation at cityhouse.org/donate to help us continue to support and bring joy to our clients this season. A donation of $100 is enough to provide 1 hour of counseling for a client.

City House had the honor of being the special guest for the Tyler Technologies, Inc. 2023 Annual Marketing Team Building Event. This was such a unique and fun process for our development team to be a part of. We want to thank the many creatives at Tyler Technologies for taking the time to learn about our mission and pour their heart (and ideas) into the future of City House so we can continue to improve and transform the lives of youth and young adults.
