Providence House Homeless Family Shelter - Shreveport, LA



Providence House provides short-term transitional housing in combination with an individualized support program including: education programs, child care, parenting, money management, and life skills development. Once families have met the program goals and expectations, they advance to 'Project Next Step', where they transition in to subsidized apartments throughout our community. They continue to receive case management and access to other services through Providence House for up to 2 years. When they graduate the program, the lease is signed over in their name where they continue to live long-term.

Families wishing to receive our help must:
    be homeless
    have children who are minors
    be willing and capable to work full time
    be willing to work a program to become drug and alcohol free if there is evidence of an addiction
    be legally married (if a two-parent family)
    be willing to participate in our program

For families who both qualify and participate in our program, Providence House is a bridge back to self-sufficiency. Families work with a licensed social worker and a family advocate to learn life skills that help reverse the cycle of homelessness.
