What We Do
About Providence House
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…
Our mission is, “Breaking the homeless cycle one family at a time.”
Underlying the mission of Providence House is God’s gracious intention, sovereign purpose, and steadfast love for each and every person. In providing shelter, care, support, and encouragement for families in need, we would be a visible sign and instrument of God’s own provision for his children.
The Lord who created you says, “Fear not, I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.” Isaiah 43:1
Imagine… A Community Where No Family is Homeless.
Our vision is to be a catalyst for change so no family in our community is homeless. We fulfill our vision by providing all families an opportunity to thrive as equal members of our community by engaging them to perform acts of compassion, empowerment, and advocacy.
We cannot do it without you, and we are asking you to get involved. There are so many ways for you to partner with us in our mission to end the cycle of homelessness in the Shreveport/Bossier area.
