Providence Service Corporation Announces Preliminary Results of Annual Meeting of Stockholders
Date:6/15/2009

Incumbent Nominees Overwhelmingly Re-Elected

Less Than 2% of Non Avalon Shares Supported Avalon's Nominees

TUCSON, Ariz., June 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today announced that, based on a preliminary vote count provided by its proxy solicitor, stockholders overwhelmingly re-elected Providence's two director nominees, Fletcher Jay McCusker and Kristi L. Meints at the Company's June 15, 2009 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. According to that preliminary vote count, Avalon's nominees received support from less than 2% of the shares held by non-affiliates of the Avalon Group and voted in the election of directors.

"We appreciate the strong support of our stockholders and look forward to moving beyond the Avalon Group's disruptive and distracting proxy contest and their self-interested agenda and returning our full attention to delivering on Providence's very significant potential and enhancing value for ALL Providence stockholders," said Fletcher Jay McCusker, Providence's CEO.

IVS Associates, Inc., the independent Inspector of Elections, has indicated that it expects to issue a preliminary tabulation of the votes early next week. Final results of the Annual Meeting will be announced once they are certified by the Inspector following the customary review and challenge period.
