Holiday Giving

Give the Gift of Home

JoyThe Providence House is more than a shelter from the streets, it is a way out of the homeless cycle. More than 89% of our graduates are still living independently. Our program works because our people work. 

Last year, Providence House served more than 300 families including 600-plus children. Sadly, we turned away over 1,000 people seeking shelter and a new start in life because we had “No Room at the Inn.”

Our aim at Providence House is to help homeless children and their families break the homeless cycle and begin a new life.  This Holiday Season, help us give the Gift of Home to homeless families.

HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP!

GIVE A ONE-TIME GIFT 

Your support will make a direct impact and help homeless children and their families realize their dreams of becoming successful and self-sustaining, both now and for generations to come.

Making a donation to help homeless families in honor of someone you love is a great way to give a unique gift to the person who has everything.

Adopt a Family

Each year, the Providence House helps approximately 150 FAMILIES in crisis enjoy a special Christmas through the "Adopt-a-Family" program.

The Adopt-a-Family program is our annual drive to provide gifts to homeless families in the Providence House Program. It is an opportunity to make a huge difference in the life of a family by providing them with a joyous holiday season. Sponsors "adopt" a family and purchase gifts from a wish list written by the recipient themselves.

The Adopt-A-Family program is designed to encourage individuals, churches, groups and businesses to help spread some Christmas cheer by sponsoring a family in need.
