Providence House Honored by The Nonprofit Times

as a Top Nonprofit to Work for in 2019

CLEVELAND The Nonprofit Times announced that Providence House, a crisis nursery committed to ending child abuse and neglect, is one of 2019’s Top 50 Nonprofits to Work for in the U.S. Providence House is also the first Cleveland nonprofit to be recognized by The Nonprofit Times.

“We are so proud to be include in the top 50 nonprofits to work for, including being the first nonprofit in Cleveland to be on the list,” said Natalie Leek-Nelson, Providence House CEO and president. “We take a lot of pride in creating a supportive workplace culture that both values our employees and also includes their input on workplace policies and programs.”

Providence House was evaluated across eight core focus areas: Leadership and Planning, Corporate Culture and Communications, Role Satisfaction, Work Environment, Relationship with Supervisor, Training, Development and Resources, Pay and Benefits, and Overall Engagement. Components of the evaluation included an employer application (60 question survey of policies, procedures, and benefits), and a confidential 79-question survey that employees voluntarily completed across the eight core focus areas. Flexibility, strong benefits, and feeling appreciated were among the top responses for Providence House and its fellow nonprofits that were included in the top 50 list.

The leading business publication for nonprofit management, The Nonprofit Times reaches more than 36,000 executives of the nonprofit community in print and digital format, ranging from C-suite executives to directors of fundraising, marketing, social media, and human resources departments to accounting and other financial management decision-makers.
