Our Mission


The Lord who created you says, “Fear not, I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1)

Underlying the mission of Providence House is God’s gracious intention, sovereign purpose, and steadfast love for each and every person. In providing shelter, care, support, and encouragement for families in need, we would be a visible sign and instrument of God’s own provision for his children.


Our Vision: Imagine... A Community Where No Family is Homeless.

Our vision is to be a catalyst for change so no family in our community is homeless. We will fullfill our vision by providing all families an opportunity to thrive as equal members of our community through engaging the community to perform acts of compassion, empowerment, and advocacy.


We believe that every human being is unique and a gift from God. Who we are as human beings is determined by how we treat each other and how we order our lives together. The common thread that flows throughout the Providence House program is God’s grace and compassion that enables lives to be continually transformed.

The Providence House program has its roots in the Bible. The foundation of the program is what God accomplished in the Book of Genesis. God brought order out of chaos. The chaos of homelessness and the lack of structure and order prevents successful living. God calls each of us to be responsible and accountable in how we lead our lives in our own family, the faith community, and the larger community. Therefore, providing someone a fish is simply not enough; we must teach families how to fish so they may live self-sufficiently and independently not only today, but also for the rest of their lives.

Our Goal

Providence House is a residential development center for homeless families with children, providing comprehensive support services for improving the family structure and moving the family into independent living.

The cycle of homelessness is broken when any person can work and bring home enough money to pay for food, housing, childcare, transportation, and health care.
