Cleveland, Ohio

Innovative and Exemplary:

Providence House in Cleveland, OH,Ā established 37 years ago by Sister Hope Greener, maintains 30 beds to serve 350 children and 150 families with center-based crisis care. Between 200 and 300 families receive community-based family support each year. Services for children include: emergency shelter, direct care services, and medical care and monitoring. Services for parents include: case management/aftercare; parent support and education; family trauma services; family medical skills training. Providence House recently began offering an after care program of in-person case management for 6-12 months following a crisis, and a trauma informed group led by a social worker and peers as part of a discharge plan. Providence House participated in long-term outcomes study with Case Western Reserve University. In response to the multiple requests for information they receive each year, Providence House has developed a consulting menu and are in the process of developing a consulting/replication framework using a digital platform to allow ease in connecting and learning.
