Providence Center’s educational programs have been providing hope and joy to the Fairhill section of North Philadelphia since 1993. We are an independent non-profit founded in 1993 by the Holy Child Sisters, an order that has taught and worked in the neighborhood for over 100 years. Our students come back year after year to be part of out-of-school time programming designed to build resiliency, leadership, and community. Families also have access to English language classes and other supports. Reflecting the population the Fairhill area, Providence Center works primarily with Puerto Ricans and Latino immigrants. Though our neighborhood has the highest poverty rate in Philadelphia, we are committed to helping hard-working families build futures filled with hope and opportunity. Our mission is to educate people to have the power and spirit to transform their lives and community.
Providence Center is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Providence Center maintains a policy of non-discrimination with respect to employees and applicants for employment.
