Let's Break the Cycle
"Yes, the child needs a safe place, but if the mother is not given consistent and intentional mentoring, the child will return to a very similar situation. This means the cycle doesn't end and the child remains at risk. Change takes time, resources, and effort, but if real change is made, it is a better return on investment to help the mother, than just helping the child."

"I have gained stability and safety by CityHouse providing a place for me and my child to call 'home'. Life's struggles have not become any less but have enabled me to share my trials with women who love and empower other women. I have now begun to fix the wreckage of my past and can finally be the mother my child calls me to be."
