About This Activity

Most often when families come to Providence House they have nothing—no home, no car, very few belongings and no plan for the future. The singular aim of Providence House is to break the homeless cycle one family at a time! How?  After 28-years of serving the homeless community, our success begins with emotional support for the whole family. With specialized guidance, intensive counseling, educational training and a high level of accountability, Providence House serves an average of 80 families each day which includes almost 170 children. We invite you to join us in our vision….”Imagine a community where no family is homeless.”
