Thank you for a great Christmas!

Posted on January 3rd, 2011.

Providence House has been blessed with a great community of support to help break the cycle of homelessness one family at a time. Never is that more evident than during the holiday season.

In 2010, we served more than 150 families for the Christmas season. Through the generosity of supporters like you, our mothers, fathers and children had a great holiday and were able to spend Christmas morning opening presents with joy and excitement.

Providence House resident Jamaica said, “It was good to have my own Christmas in my own home.”

Jamaica was overwhelmed by the generosity of those who gave to help make Christmas with her 2-year-old daughter “a blessing.”

“If it wasn’t for them (donors), my baby probably wouldn’t have had anything for Christmas,” she said.

Whether it was wrapping gifts, preparing a Christmas basket of food or providing gifts, the generosity of the people of Shreveport-Bossier City was unmistakable.

We at Providence House want to say thank you to all who helped make this holiday a great one for so many families.
