CityHouse
City House is a four home, 36 beds, multi-faceted agency that will provide residential and non-residential services to over 500 children, young adults and their families this year.  The youth we serve are ages newborn through 21 and are homeless for a variety of reasons, but the most common causes are severe family conflict, including physical violence, sexual abuse, chronic neglect, or abandonment.  Some are entrusted to us from Child Protective Services; others come through referrals from school counselors, judges, concerned neighbors or even self-discovery. We are the only shelter in Collin County specifically designed and licensed to shelter and care for these kids.
