Providence House is experiencing an alarming increase in demand for our services to protect children and support families through crisis.
In the past 5 years, we have seen the number of unserved children increase by 50%. Over the next year, we anticipate approximately 400 children to be waitlisted or unserved due to our current limited capacity. Nearly 70% of these children are from the East Side of Cleveland.
We are launching our Giving Hope for the PHuture Campaign to open a 20-bed Crisis Nursery and Family Resiliency Center in the Buckeye-Shaker Neighborhood which will allow us to protect more children, support more families, and strengthen even more communities.
We are excited to announce further development of the Providence House East Campus on Buckeye!
We have purchased the property next door to our existing site and will now redevelop Buckeye Road from East 118th to East 119th. This newly acquired property is planned for a 3-story mixed-use “Community Hub” to host tenant space for partner social service agencies, local businesses, and retail/workforce development storefronts.
Our project focuses on community development “from the inside” – focusing on the health, safety, and stability of the community’s children and families. The Providence House East Campus site is an anchor project centered in the heart of a larger 10-block, $60 million neighborhood transformation zone on Buckeye Road.
By coming into the Buckeye-Shaker neighborhood of Cleveland, Providence House hopes to be a central anchor and partner in the future development of this and surrounding communities, as we were in the now vibrant Ohio City neighborhood.
