Providence House

Services for Children

We use a multi-generational approach focused on both the child and their family. Read more about our Crisis Nursery approach.

Providence House provides emergency shelter and crisis care to children newborn through twelve-years-old. We are licensed by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services to operate 24/7 and can serve up to 20 children at a time in our traditional Crisis Nursery. Our Pediatric Crisis Nursery can serve an additional 10 children at a time who also have medical needs.

Child eating

Each child receives their own bed or crib and personal storage areas and a nutritious diet of three meals a day and two healthy snacks.

At Providence House, children find safety and comfort in a home-like setting before abuse or neglect occurs. Children stay with us from 24 hours up to 60 days (with extensions of up to 90 days available) until they are safely reunited with their own family or admitted in other long-term care settings. During their stay, children receive free shelter, basic personal necessities, medical care, developmental and educational enrichment, and—most significantly—unconditional love.
