Providence Mount St. Vincent Foundation
Make the Magic Happen
Providence Mount St. Vincent is one of the most recognized intergenerational communities in the world. We are committed to providing an environment where those at the end of their long lives experience as much joy as those who are beginning their lives. And more importantly, the two generations are experiencing this joy together in one building.
Each year, our extended family grows as new students and residents arrive at The Mount. And each year, the Mount Foundation provides $100,000 to support the “magic” of intergenerational moments. This funding is an investment in building relationships between students and residents.
The Impact of Intergenerational Programming
Intergenerational programming creates built-in “grandparents” and “grandchildren” for friendships and learning. The Mount is known as a national and international role model in changing the landscape of intergenerational relationships. People travel from all over the world to study our model. We have been pioneering blending young and old since the establishment of the Intergenerational Learning Center (ILC) in 1991. Today, the program connects 400 elders who make The Mount their home with 125 students who attend the ILC.
