Hours of Emergency Childcare Provided
Jeremiah's Place has been able to provide nearly 90,000 hours of emergency childcare services. That's roughly 9 years of continuous services!
This is by way of nearly 6,000 total visits where each child that stays with Jeremiah's Place is here for an average of 16 hours per visit!
(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.

We are able to provide our incredible offerings to families across Western Pennsylvania and surrounding areas by the generous support we receive from our communities and corporate sponsors.
