Investing In Our Community

Our world looks a lot different today than when the Sisters of Providence arrived in Nome in 1902. But our Mission to provide compassionate care for those most vulnerable in Alaska hasn't changed. You are our partners in that Mission.

When you make a gift, you are investing in the current and future health of our community as your gift stays right here in Alaska. Providence is grateful to be an integral community partner with many organizations across our state. It allows us to strategically plan initiatives driven by our expert professionals and care providers to address critical health situations we experience living or visiting here. Thank you for your partnership and investment in this work!
