Mission Statement: In collaboration with community partners, we aim to promote healthy family functioning by providing educational, nutritional, and social support programs for families in need of immediate assistance and long term goal attainment.

The Providence Center, with a spirit of genuine compassion and hospitality, connects individuals and families with education and resources to empower them to improve their lives.

We partner with community organizations that share our vision of a vibrant old South End and metropolitan Toledo where people have hope, dignity, and an opportunity for self-sufficiency.

Our roots date back to the early 1970s and a small neighborhood center serving the Latino community. Formerly known as the Aurora Gonzalez Community and Family Resource Center, The Providence Center today offers expanded services and programs and serves a broad population.

I feel The Providence Center care a lot about me. I feel respected and wanted here.
