TUCSON, Ariz., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today announced that Craig A. Norris, the Company's Chief Operating Officer, has been appointed to the Company's Board of Directors. Mr. Norris' appointment fills the vacancy left by the April 2008 resignation of Steven I. Geringer and returns the board to six members. Mr. Norris will not serve on any committee of the Board.

Mr. Norris, age 41, has been with Providence since its inception in 1996, joining the Company as the Director of Planning and Development. From 1998 to 2004 he was President of Providence's Eastern Division and in 2004 was named to the position of Chief Operating Officer.

Prior to joining Providence, Mr. Norris held a number of social services management positions. He was the former Chief Operating Officer of Parents and Children Together, Inc. in Arizona. He also spent time with direct clinical and client services while working in the private sector and with the Arizona Department of Health Services. He has a Masters in Organizational Management and a Masters in Counseling from the University of Phoenix and an undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona.

"Craig is one of Providence's original employees and has been instrumental in the Company's growth over the last 10 years," commented Fletcher McCusker, Chairman and CEO. "His 18 years in the social services industry and his managerial experience will be of significant benefit to the Board as we manage through this difficult environment."
