Mission Statement
Creating a space where people are accepted and have the support to take the lead on transforming their own story.

About Us

The story of Providence Place began in 1895 when Madame Volino, the owner of a San Antonio brothel, experienced a life-changing conversion and committed her home as a rescue mission for vulnerable women and helped them place their babies for adoption.

Since then, Providence Place has placed more than 6,000 children in loving homes. Providence Place is a professional adoption agency fully licensed by the state of Texas and recognized as a pioneer in open adoption with a reputation for integrity.

In addition, we are a unique non-profit that has been in existence since 1895. We support young adults with disabilities, helping young families become better informed about child care, and provide a safe haven for women who have survived human trafficking, sexual assault and domestic violence. We are centered in God’s love, having been called by God to care for those in need.

“Let me give you a new command:  Love one another.  In the same way I loved you, love one another.  This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples – when they see the love you have for each other.”  John 13:34-35 (The Message)

Vision Statement
A community without barriers for all God’s people.

Many of our adopted children have stayed in contact with Providence Place over the years and several have been active members of our board.

Today, our campus is also home to a growing group of nonprofits sharing resources and expertise, in a vibrant community offering broad opportunity and collaboration.
