About Us

Our Mission

To believe in every individual, and provide training, education, and business creation opportunities within a Christ-centered model.

Our Vision

To help change the trajectory of the lives of women and children so they can thrive in pursuit of God’s purpose.

CEO & Founder

Christine Soule

After trying to outpace trauma from childhood and early adulthood, Christine encountered Jesus. Although she didn’t know it at the time, He began putting the pieces into place for what would become Providence Heights. Instead of holding her back, her past inspires her dedication to help women realize that they have been created on purpose and for a purpose.
