The Providence House

Get Involved…  At Providence House, we depend on our volunteers to support our families, our events, and an array of projects and services throughout the year. We invite you to help “break the homeless cycle one family at a time” . . . with the gift of your time, talent & energy!  All opportunities are Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm, unless noted otherwise.


Serve-a- Meal
We served approximately 50,000 meals in 2016. You can provide a meal for our families or you can serve the meal we prepare. Seven Days a week.  Lunch is served at noon and dinner is served at 4:45 pm weekdays and 4:30 pm on weekends.


Tutor a School Age Child
Assist our school age children with their homework (not necessary to be a teacher) on Monday afternoons, 4 pm - 4:45 pm. Each student is on a different level, and tutors give them the individualized attention they need to succeed.

Organizing Donations
We receive donations of clothing, household items, and furniture on a daily basis. You can help us keep these items organized as they are received.


Organizing Supplies
As we receive donations of supplies, we need your help to keep it organized in our supply closets and warehouse.


Host a Movie or Game Night
Bring your family, a movie, or a game and spend an evening with our families! This can be done on Fridays or Saturdays beginning at 6:00pm.
