Holiday Giving

Each year, Providence House helps at least 150 FAMILIES in crisis enjoy a special Christmas through the “Adopt-a-Family” program.

The Adopt-A-Family program is our annual drive to provide gifts to homeless families in the Providence House Program. It is an opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of families by providing them with a joyous holiday season. Sponsors “adopt” a family and purchase gifts from a wish list written by the recipient.

The Adopt-A-Family program is designed to encourage individuals, churches, groups, and businesses to spread Christmas cheer by sponsoring a family in need.

To participate, please contact Katherine Shirley at or call (318) 221-7887.

Twice Blessed cards are a thoughtful way to share with family and friends while helping Providence House to continue the year round work of serving more than 165 homeless children daily. Your gift ensures homeless families with children have food, clothing, shelter, and hope!


Send a minimum gift of $10 per card to 814 Cotton Street, Shreveport, LA 71101 (Attn: Katherine Shirley – Twice Blessed) or pay online at DONATE. Simply select a general donation and fill the In Honor Of section with “Twice Blessed”. You can fax your list to (318) 221-7976 or e-mail it to Providence House will finish the work!

Christmas cards will be personalized with your name, your company’s name, and/or a special message. Envelopes will be hand addressed, stamps affixed, and  mailed in time for the holiday season. Relax and enjoy the holiday season knowing your gifts will touch your family and friends in a very meaningful way – by helping homeless families with children.

Holiday Baskets


Help feed a homeless family this holiday season

Providence House is currently helping 80 families everyday. You can provide a Thanksgiving Basket to one of these families and give them the opportunity to enjoy the kind of meal that you will enjoy this Thanksgiving.

We are asking that you help to provide a turkey or ham with all of the fixings. Our families vary in size, but we would like each basket to be able to feed about 6 people.

For suggested items and delivery instructions, please contact Katherine Shirley at
