The story of 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.
Multiple Projects for Cityhouse:
(20 people optimal)
Delray Beach Children's Garden

We are seeking 20 volunteers to help with
4KIDS PROJECT – to help PREPARE and DECORATE the office SPACE that will be used for 4KIDS Gift of Hope this Christmas season.
The Office Suite is an empty suite next door to the 4KIDS Palm Beach Office in Delray Beach. We’d love volunteers to come into this vacant space and create the setting for our Gift of Hope – which is a toy drive for KIDS in foster care and recently adopted in Palm Beach County.
During Gift of Hope, friends of 4KIDS will be dropping of toys and gifts for infants through age 17. Then we have three designated “shopping days” for foster and adoptive parents to come and shop for the children in their care. It’s a wonderful way to love on these foster and adoptive parents and help make Christmas special for the KIDS.
So Nov. 16th will be the one day to run the vacuum, wipe down the tables and decorate the space w Christmas LOVE and festive signage.

WiseTribe/Carver Garden Volunteer Opportunity https://wisetribe.us/
We're seeking approximately 10 volunteers from Love Delray and Dani Orias will be serving as the "garden forman" on November 16th.
Join with WiseTribe & Carver Middle School to restore the school's organic garden, which was mistakenly sprayed with pesticides by the school district. The existing plantings unfortunately must be removed to make way for new -chemical free- seedlings. You're passionate about healthy community and believe food is the ultimate medicine, please join us in restoring Carver's garden. Activities include removing plants, spreading mulch, weeding and other general gardening activities. We recommended wearing closed toe shoes and bringing water, sunscreen, a hat and gardening gloves if you have them.
