Mission Statement
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.

Vision Statement
Children everywhere are raised in safe, loving families free from abuse and neglect.

About Us
Providence House, Inc. was founded in 1981 to provide emergency shelter for children in Cleveland whose families were experiencing a crisis. As Ohio's first licensed crisis nursery, we offer free, voluntary (non-custodial) shelter to children newborn-10 years old who live in situations which place them at risk of abuse or neglect. Our program is focused on child abuse prevention and family preservation and serves over 400 children annually. Providence House services address the specific needs of the child and parent through a two-generation approach to help protect children, stabilize family crisis and establish a solid foundation for their future.
