We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to transition women who are homeless and recently released from prison back into society. We provide case management and an array of programs throughout our network of transitional residences, individual apartments, and permanent supportive housing.
Our goal is to help our residents obtain permanent housing, get an education, learn job skills and find employment. This four-tier approach enables women and children to become strong families. We provide daycare for our infants and toddlers, and we assure that our older children are enrolled in school. In addition, all residents have access to a Registered Nurse through our Family Health Services Program.
Our unique structure provides a home away from home. Our core community members, volunteers and staff share in the day-to-day life of our residents, teaching by example the life skills that will help them successfully reintegrate into the community.
Around 50,000 women and families will sleep in New York City's homeless shelters tonight. We ultimately strive to break the cycle of homelessness, abuse and return to incarceration through creating long-lasting change in the lives of these women and families. We serve over 500 women and children at Providence House every year but we cannot achieve our goals alone.
