Our Mission

The work of City House inspires hope, trust, and healing through spiritual listening with people on the margins—including those experiencing poverty, addiction, and imprisonment.

About City House

City House opened its metaphoric doors in 2000. In reality, City House is not a place, but a philosophy of spiritual exploration and companionship. We are a dedicated staff of experienced and educated professionals. Our collective foundation includes work and training in theology, spiritual direction, communications and the non-profit sector.

City House is a nonprofit organization with over 30 active volunteer spiritual directors. We provide our services by partnering with social service agencies; we work with the agency’s clients, providing a spiritual complement to the agency’s own mission. We offer individual one-on-one sessions, group direction, and organized retreats.

Over 4,000 people living Minneapolis are homeless.

Help make a difference today.

Stories of Hope

The women I sit with at Tubman vary in age, ethnicity and background. Some are journeying alone and others have young children with them. Every story is unique, but each woman is homeless, has left an abusive situation and is working toward building a better life. The trauma they’ve endured and the enormity of the challenges they face cause me to me to marvel that they continue to put one foot in front of another, day after day after day.  And despite the difficult circumstance they are in, I never see any blaming, complaining, hopelessness, or sense of victimhood.  What I do see in these women I’ve had the honor and privilege to sit across a table from, is strength, hope, courage, resilience, determination, and often, a very strong faith. As our time together ends, some may offer a hug, or a “thank you” or an “I feel so much better,” as they leave. They have no idea of the gifts they’ve given me.  I am left feeling profoundly humbled and grateful, with my own faith buoyed, and an imprint on my heart.

Be a part of the story.
