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.
East Side Campus: We have completed the first phase of this transformational project! Renovation of the building is complete and ready to be occupied. We anticipate the construction of the East Side Crisis Nursery will commence Spring of 2021 and that the East Side Campus will be fully operational by the Spring of 2022.
West Side Campus: We are in the midst of constructing the addition of a small activity room to the Pediatric Crisis Nursery on the west side. Additionally, we are currently installing a new “green” permeable paver parking lot and new privacy fencing to be completed by October.
