Mission Statement


To provide short-term and safe shelter to Brunswick County youth who, due to an emergency, high-risk or crisis situation, cannot remain with their families.

Welcome to Providence Home

Providence Home is now in its seventeenth year of operation as the Emergency Shelter for youth in Brunswick County.  The years have gone by rather quickly but not uneventfully.  Seventeen years ago, the board of directors of the Family Emergency Teen Shelter, motivated by a desire to help youth in crisis, prepared a safe and loving place for all who needed to come.  They named it Providence Home.  Now that home continues to fulfill its mission to protect and provide for children in need of out-of-home placement.

Since opening our doors on November 19, 1997, we have provided shelter, food and clothing and attended to the medical, educational, recreational, and spiritual needs of several hundred Brunswick County youth.
