About Providence House

Providence House has helped keep more than 14,000 children safe and families together in the last 42 years, embracing them with support to enhance stability and strengthen communities.

We provide free, voluntary, 24/7 emergency shelter to children newborn through age 12 whose families are experiencing crisis situations such as homelessness, domestic violence, sobriety, mental health, or medical challenges. Our Family Preservation Crisis Nursery is a safe, licensed, homelike environment for children that gives parents and guardians peace of mind knowing their children remain in their custody and are receiving loving care.

While their children stay with us, parents and guardians engage with our Social Work Team to address the challenges they’re facing through counseling, parenting education, trauma services, case management, and connections to our more than 130 community partner agencies to provide support and build a strong foundation for their family’s future.

Our families come from more than 30 zip codes across Greater Cleveland. The majority of families served are led by single moms of color. Last year, 20% of our families came to Providence House without any income, and 100% met the ALICE threshold of earning non-living wages.

We also offer community-based services, including a Community Referral Program that provides essential need items to families through referrals from partner agencies.

Our West Campus is located in Ohio City, and our new East Campus is located in the Buckeye-Shaker Neighborhood.
