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.

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.

We have a deep appreciation for the City House volunteers. Their dedication, time, and commitment to the people we serve are the core of the work of City House.
At City House, we do nothing alone. Our philosophy of spiritual companionship encircles everything we do. We have created and nurtured thriving partnerships with a wide range of institutions and talented individuals. Together we serve with the strength of one.
A choice to fund City House is a choice to care. The return on your investment is a return on inspiration. Our impact is one life made right, just in time. We make a difference one soul at a time. We hope (and pray) that you will be generous.
