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
Target demographics: children in emergency shelter when parents are temporarily unable to care for them due to crisis situations
Direct beneficiaries per year: 326 children from 166 families
Geographic areas served: Greater Cleveland Area

I've been acquainted with Providence House for several years and am continually impressed with the high quality assistance they provide to families in need in Northeast Ohio. What started as a crisis care nursery has turned into a comprehensive program to keep children safe and families intact. Parents are given the skills they need to be successful parents, while their children are nurtured and loved in a caring environment. God bless Providence House for all it does for our children!
Providence House is an amazing organization that has been taking care of Cleveland's children for over 30 years. It has an unbelievable re-unification rate of 99%. They are leaders in their field and continue to grow each day.
