"City House to Hold Ribbon-Cutting and House Warming on Tuesday, Dec. 1" by Chey Reynolds
The staff and board of directors of City House will hold a ribbon-cutting, sign dedication and holiday house warming event in celebration of its new Youth Resource Center and administrative offices on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2015, at 10:15 am. The event is open to the public will take place at 901 18th Street in Plano, Tex. (corner of Ave. H and 18th).
City House’s choice of date to show off the facility couldn’t be more appropriate, given the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving has become known as #GivingTuesday – a global day of giving fueled by social media and collaboration.
Following the ribbon-cutting there will be a house warming from 10:30 am-5:00 pm for the community to come tour our facility, meet City House staff, and learn about the services and programs the organization provides for homeless and troubled youth and young adults in North Texas. Starbucks will be serving some of their delicious coffee as well. Holiday Warehouse of Plano has graciously donated the beautiful holiday lights and decorations for the event. Special thanks to longtime Plano resident, City House volunteer and decorator extraordinaire Janet Melton for helping make our house look fantastic!
About City House

Founded in 1988 by two Plano schoolteachers who noticed some of their students living out of their lockers, what began as a six-bed shelter for homeless teens has evolved into a 48-bed multi-faceted organization. City House runs an emergency shelter for children newborn to 17 years old, a Transitional Living Program for homeless young adults 18-to-21 years old, and community counseling to local youth and families who need it, focusing on easing and working through family conflict.
