What we do

The most common question that I'm asked about CitySquare is a simple, but important one:  "What exactly do you do?"

We spend a good bit of our time answering that key question.  Usually we refer people to our website (  Often we arrange for a tour that provides us the opportunity to provide a more detailed answer.  In an elevator we talk about our four major areas of concern:  Health, Hunger, Housing and Hope--the 4Hs!

In almost every case the best way to answer the question is to invite a neighbor who knows CitySquare  because of their personal experience in receiving our services.

Here's an example of just that sort of answer.  I share it in an attempt to answer the question one more time!  After you watch and listen, share it with your friends, your business network, your church and your other associates.

As you watch and listen, notice how a number of options fell into place for our friend, including AmeriCorps.

Larry - congratulations on your selection as Public Citizen of the Year by the Dallas chapter of the National Association of Socialist Workers!

BTW, who is Chris Oliver?

If you want to label someone, why don't you label yourself too, Anonymous? Name please.

Anon 2:56, Chris is a neighbor who worked his way off the street. His testimony answers your question.

I don't mind your hatred directed to me, but I feel you are demeaning and unfair to the hardworking, helpful, life saving community of social workers.

BTW, how hard is it to be so captured by hate and negativity? Must be a real burden

I pity you.

Karen, my name is Whydonshu Byteme.
Thanks for asking!

Karen said...

Anon, it's a tempting offer, and thanks for it, but, unfortunately, you're invisible, so.... Karen

Well Karen, if you don't like my real name" Whydonshu Byteme", you may call me SIR.

BTW, do you think that by posting a name that gives you visibility? I suspect that you are merely another LJ concoction or perhaps one of his hired flunkies.

Larry James said...

Anon 11:47, just FYI, Karen is no concoction; and as far as I know, she doesn't work for me. BTW--we have no flunkies on our staff.

Mmm, mmm, mmm, watch out: your poison is seeping out again! :)

Larry, if I read too many more of the Anons I just might turn into a liberal. Larry, even though nuts like this post I am still glad that you opened the doors. People with brains can easily see through these folks. We can weed the nuts out and have a good discussion and raise useful questions.
