Providence Home covers the majority of costs associated with each man receiving basic needs and services. However, we ask each resident, once he becomes employed, to participate financially. This is in order that he might take the first step in gaining financial responsibility and sustainability, as well as to transition to independent living in the months ahead. Weekly fees are $100 per week, and we provide budgeting assistance to help each man progress toward his goals. Most of our residents have other financial obligations as well, such as child support, phones, car insurance, probation/parole fees, previous medical bills, storage expenses, and more.
We realize recovery and reintegration into society is a process and a journey, not a quick fix.
At Providence Home, we seek to provide an environment of support and accountability for our men to improve and rebuild their lives. However, we also believe that their personal investment into this process is essential to their success. Because of this, a man who agrees to be part of the program also agrees to these main requirements:
Be interested and willing to work and actively seek employment
Contribute $100 per week, which is a portion of their cost of living for a bed, three meals a day, and weekly laundry services and a first step in becoming financially responsible
Mandatory attendance at chapel five times per week: Monday through Thursday evenings, and Sunday mornings
Set goals and actively work to transform their lives
Zero tolerance for drugs/alcohol usage
Assist with cleaning tasks in the common spaces
Curfew at 10:00pm and lights out at 11:00pm
No prescribed narcotics
Treating others with respect and no fighting, racial conflicts, confrontations, inappropriate sexual behavior, profanity, crude behavior, or foul/abusive language.
Through these expectations, residents can develop new patterns of thinking, new habits, and new skills that can help carry them through to higher levels of stable and successful living, not only during their time on campus at Providence Home, but also afterward.
