What We Do

About Providence House

Our History

Providence House began in 1988 when two members of First Presbyterian Church in Shreveport, Louisiana, Mary Anne Selber and Jean Sayres, recognized a need for shelter services for homeless families with children. Originally named Evergreen House and operated by the Salvation Army, the organization served as a temporary shelter until 1992 when it became evident there was a greater need in Northwest Louisiana for transitional housing for families with children…
