Providence Network is an urban, transformational housing organization that helps impoverished men, women and families heal from addictions, abuse and homelessness to become self-sufficient, productive members of the community. We help people achieve self-sufficiency through a living-in-community model that includes our two-year “FirstStep” transitional program of individual counseling, group therapy, vocational assistance, life skills development, spiritual growth and accountability with 24/7 live-in staff. Graduates are able to continue their growth in our “NextStep” substance-free, affordable apartment communities. For more about us, please visit www.providencenetwork.org.
