Providence House

Adopt Our Model

Providence House is one of the nation's oldest operating crisis nurseries among the 70+ in operation in the United States and Canada today. 

Group of children at Providence House

With nearly 40 years of experience, we also support the longest length of stay among nurseries in the United States and the deepest levels of services beyond children’s emergency shelter, to promote family stability and preservation following emergency stays of children in crisis. The beneficial results of Crisis Nursery care are evident:

  • Increasing rates of successful family preservation after children’s short-term stays in a Crisis Nursery
  • Reduced involvement of Child Protective Services and Foster Care placements

If you are interested in more in depth discussion regarding our Crisis Nursery model including direct childcare services, program services, business infrastructure, fund development, or governance we do offer fee based consultation opportunities.
