OUR MISSION

​     Our mission is to provide hope and renewal to homeless single mothers and their children in Palm Beach County, Florida. CityHouse allows the mother to experience real change through a long-term program that offers daily mentoring, accountability, educational opportunities, support and encouragement while giving their children a safe and secure environment to live and thrive in.

our story

The vision for CityHouse began with a few families who were providing temporary shelter for children through a program called Safe Families.  This program helps divert children from being placed in the child welfare system while the mothers seek to reestablish themselves so that once again they may care for their own children. Effective care was provided to the children apart from their mothers, while a desire to do more for their mothers was ignited.  

 

Over time, it became clear that if more emphasis could be placed on the family unit rather than just the children, these single mothers in need would have better opportunities to develop healthy lifestyles enabling them to provide sustainable, loving and proper care to their children. We established CityHouse in 2014 to provide long term, transformational assistance to mothers and their children.
