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.
