Family Homelessness

Most often when families come to Providence House, they have nothing - no home, no car, very little belongings, and no hope for a future. We help these families overcome their crises. We offer not only basic services, such as shelter, food, and childcare, but also specialized guidance:

  • emotional and educational assessment and support
  • job skills training
  • life skills classes
  • budgeting, training, and behavior-modification classes

Our "Break the Cycle of Homelessness Program" is structured and demanding, but families who commit to it succeed and continue to live successfully into the future.

Each year, Providence House serves approximately 300 families, which include some 600 children.

Children Programs

Children Programs

Homelessness places profound stress on a child's life. Children who are experiencing or have experienced homelessness have four times the rate of developmental delays, three times the rate of emotional or behavioral problems and twice the rate of learning disabilities. Homeless children also have extremely higher rates of health issues than other housed children.
