At Jeremiah's Place, our primary focus is to keep children safe and to provide a safe and supportive solution for families in need.

Average Visits Per Child
Once a family has been introduced to the services we provide, we see that they utilize our services, on average, 5 times. This shows their confidence in our services since they are using them multiple times, while also maintaining that the services we provide are short-term in nature.
The services of Jeremiah's Place make a difference and once a family has been onboarded it makes it easier for them to become repeat visitors.
