Providence House

Diamond and Cameron

Diamond was feeling anxious and overwhelmed after her 6-week-old son, Cameron, was diagnosed with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. She was referred to Providence House by MetroHealth so she could begin mental health treatment and secure employment.

Diamond and Cameron

Cameron stayed at Providence House in our Pediatric Crisis Nursery, where he received loving care, all of his medications, specific formula, and breast milk. Diamond maintained Cameron's medical care by taking him to medical appointments during the six weeks he was at Providence House. She and Cameron's father visited him in person and virtually through Zoom.

During that time, Diamond worked with our social work team through family preservation services including parent education, case management, and trauma services. She stayed connected with therapy and psychology services through MetroHealth and obtained her "dream job" as a chef!

When Diamond and Cameron were reunited, he was doing well developmentally, laughing, rolling over, and holding his head up!

Diamond accomplished all of her goals while working with Providence House and enrolled in our Aftercare Program.
