Providence Place

For over 119 years, Providence Place, formerly known as Methodist Mission Home, has been serving churches and communities throughout the state of Texas and beyond. It all started in 1895 in San Antonio, when brothel owner Madame Volino heard God’s calling though the words of a visiting revivalist. She transformed her brothel into a “Rescue Home for Wayward Women” and began the Methodist Mission Home ministry. The ministry quickly outgrew three locations and in 1968, moved to its 25-acre campus in northwest San Antonio. Today, Providence Place offers three programs to meet the ever-changing needs of our communities: Action Adoption, the Center for Higher Independence, and Ectropia

They are located at:
6487 Whitby Road
San Antonio, Texas 78240
Telephone: (210) 696-2410



At ACTION ADOPTION, since 1895, Providence Place has helped expectant mothers who want a better future for their babies than they can provide, and young people and families wanting to adopt and provide a loving family to a baby or child.



At Center for Higher Independence, Providence Place works with young adults with disabilities and those who are deaf. They provide work and life skills training that give them the confidence and ability to live more independently. 



At ECTROPIA, Providence Place works with area nonprofits, using creativity and collaboration to grow a vibrant campus community, where people who have lived on the fringes and been excluded are welcomed and empowered.
