Ending the cycle of generational trauma through innovative services.
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.
Today Providence Place provides multi-purpose programming to various populations. These include adult survivors of complex trauma, women facing an unplanned pregnancy, families with children under the age of three and children and youth in foster care.
We provide education, job search and therapeutic services to move individuals beyond day to day survival. We want everyone to have the opportunity to envision a different future and transform their story. 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)
A community without barriers where families live their happily ever after.
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.
