The infants and children that come to Providence House face a range of crises which place them at risk for abuse or neglect. They are primarily from economically disadvantaged families in over 30 zip codes throughout greater Cleveland. In the past year 326 children from 166 families were admitted into our care and provided with 4,609 days of care.

•95% were admitted to prevent neglect. • 41% were admitted to prevent abuse. • 36% were homeless or had unsafe housing. • 19% had a caregiver with a medical crisis. • 14% were a victim of or witness to violence. • 9% had a caregiver with a mental health crisis. • 6% had a caregiver in treatment for substance abuse.
