Mission: Providence House fights to end child abuse and neglect by protecting at-risk children, empowering families in crisis, and building safer communities for every child.
Results: Our results are clear. Last year: - Preservation: 98% of our children were reunified with their parent or guardian after an average stay of 20 days - Satisfaction: 78% of high risk parents who received intensive family support services felt their family stability increased - Compliance: 90% of our parents are fully compliant and complete our recommended case management, parent education, and visitation services - Success: A recent study shows that when parents complete our services their children are far less likely to be placed in foster care after they leave Providence House
