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.
We 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. Our goal is to place a healthy, thriving child into a healthy, healed family.
Natalie Leek-Nelson, President and CEO explains Providence House and how they connected with the Cleveland Indians wives.
The Littlest Heroes exists to positively impact the lives of children with cancer and their families, regardless of income level or zip code.

Since our inception in 2001, we’ve helped more than 4,000 families in Northeast Ohio. It is our desire to continue to expand our reach and care for as many families as possible.
