Providence Home is a faith-based transitional home currently housing 60 men. Most men arrive at Providence Home weary from prison, jail, alcohol/drug treatment programs, homeless shelters, or other unstable environments.
Providence Home creates a structured, supportive environment for men who would likely otherwise go back to their former living situation or rely on overextended and/or under-resourced family members or friends, placing them at high risk for relapse and even death.
Residents are not only provided with basic needs, such as three meals a day, a safe place to live, dorm-like room, clothing closet, and laundry services, they are also provided a variety of holistic services that address root causes of poverty and help them seek change to realize their personal potential.
Holistic services, provided by staff and partners, include, but are not limited to:
- Case management
- Employment assistance
- Chapel services
- Medical and dental care
- 12-step program
- Trauma-based recovery curriculum
- Bible studies
- Fatherhood Initiative
- Legal assistance
- Budgeting assistance
These holistic services address barriers to overcoming poverty and substance abuse disorders while helping men to reunite with their families and become financially, spiritually, emotionally, and physically stable.
Residents are expected to find a job and to contribute $100 each week as their investment in their recovery, plus assist with cleaning tasks in the common spaces. Their contribution is a first step in gaining financial sustainability in order to transition to independent living in the months ahead.
Although risk factors and barriers are often minimized through social and emotional relationships and programs through Providence Home, we especially believe that that no matter what a man is struggling with, the solution is always a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He is our Hope, our Comfort, and our “Way of Escape.”
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. contact us
