About Providence House

Providence House was founded in 1981 as a safe haven for children whose families were experiencing a crisis and has evolved into a multi-generational family preservation program that embraces and supports the entire family. We have served 14,000 children and families in our 41-year history.

Provide House:

  • Keeps children safe by offering free, voluntary (non-custodial) 24/7 emergency shelter to children newborn through age 12 when their families are experiencing a crisis, and providing for their physical, emotional, developmental, and educational needs.
  • Support families by connecting them to resources, cultivating nurturing practices, and offering individualized parent education, counseling, case management, and trauma services to help families through crisis and support long-term family stability.
  • Strengthen communities by advocating for underserved families and demonstrating the lasting impact of prevention. Providence House collaboratively partners with more than 130 public and private service providers to link families to community support, treatment, and therapies.

The infants and children who come to Providence House are primarily from economically disadvantaged families in approximately 30 zip codes throughout the Greater Cleveland area. Of the families served last year, 88% were living at or below the Federal Poverty Line and 99% of children admitted to the crisis nursery program were reunited with their families.

In addition to our crisis nursery program, Providence House also offers community-based services, including a Community Education and Resiliency Program that offers parent education, case management, and trauma services, and a Community Referral Program that provides basic needs items to families through referrals from partner agencies.
