The mission of CITY House is to strengthen the community by helping children, youth and families resolve physical and emotional crises. We provide a complementary suite of intervention and prevention services at no cost to our clients. Services include:

  • an emergency shelter
  • family counseling
  • life skills education
  • parenting skills
  • group crisis intervention
Our goal is to enable families to function more effectively within the family unit and the community.

SharePoint Project

They would like to develop an Intranet using SharePoint.


In 2007, CITY House installed new servers and software as an attempt to better serve our clients. We upgraded to Windows Small Business Server 2003 six months ago and are in the process of developing our Intranet. With the lack of knowledge base internally on our new software, SharePoint, we are in need of assistance with fully developing our Intranet. Because of this, we have not been able to fully benefit from the features SharePoint has to offer. In addition, as our agency expands, so does our need for a new client database. Our goal would be to fully develop our Intranet and to create a new client database that would be accessible through our Intranet.

Currently, we have approximately 20 employees who need accessibility to our Intranet and network. Our goal is to increase this number to 50 based on different user capabilities. Ideally, our Intranet would have at least the following pages:

Home Page
- Will have an agency wide calendar of upcoming events

Program Databases
- Family Center
- TRIPS Program
- Teen Emergency Shelter
- My Friend’s House

Help Desk (Area to enter IT and maintenance requests)

Therapist Scheduling
- Will allow our counseling center to schedule counseling sessions online. This will replace our current paper system.

Human Resources (area for commonly used documents)

Hot Topics
- Area for our agency to post articles in the news that are closely tied in with our mission.

Employee Training
- Will allow us to keep track of employee training hours and post new trainings available.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and we look forward to serving the children and families of our community more efficiently.
