Providence House, Ohio's first licensed crisis nursery, offers emergency shelter to children newborn through five years old actively living in crisis. Since 1981, Providence House has provided quality, center-based, family focused residential care to over 5,000 infants and children in crisis.

Providence House was created for the sole purpose of caring for innocent children in crisis with a goal of providing high-quality, responsive and compassionate services to infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families.

They care for at risk babies and children while working closely with referral agencies to address the needs of the parent or caregiver and attempt to resolve the crisis in the family that is placing these vulnerable young children at risk.

Their goal is to place a healthy, thriving child into a healthy, healed family. As a private, 501c3 non-profit agency, Providence House is 95% privately funded.

In this interview, Natalie Leek-Nelson explains how Providence House got connected with the Cleveland Indians Wives Association.
