Providence House

Sabrina & Lindsey

The holidays can be an especially difficult time for children and families in crisis, so we do whatever we can at Providence House to bring our wonderful families some joy this time of year. Here’s a glimpse at how we celebrate!

Sabrina & Lindsey

As a single parent of an infant, Sabrina needed a safe, enriching environment for her daughter, Lindsey, as she received inpatient treatment for a mental health crisis. Sabrina found Providence House and chose to have Lindsey stay with us so she could focus on her treatment.

During her time in our Crisis Nursery, Lindsey participated in fun holiday activities with our Childcare Providers and engaging on-site children’s programs like music classes provided by Beck Center for the Arts. She met Santa during his annual visit to the House and reached exciting milestones during her stay, such as sitting up with less support and lifting her body on all fours in preparation for crawling!

While Lindsey’s mom, Sabrina, was in treatment, she engaged in case management and parent education services with our Social Workers, who connected her with additional mental health resources and workforce development programming.

We made sure Lindsay and Sabrina could celebrate Christmas together and spend some time in our private family rooms at Providence House. We provided gifts, gift cards for food, and bus passes so they could have a special holiday.

Shortly after Christmas, Lindsey was reunited with her mom, who was able to increase stability for their future by working with Providence House!
