We strive to carry out the mission daily through the cooperation of a dedicated board of directors, committed volunteers and professional staff working in partnership with the community."

Providence is committed to making a difference, not only in the individual lives of the people we serve, but also in the communities where we live. Our team works tirelessly to connect donors with giving opportunities that matter most to them all the while, ensuring their gift makes a meaningful impact.

Our donors help fund programs and services that otherwise would not exist. With your help, we create and sustain essential programs and services not covered by insurance, and provide support for families who need social and healthcare assistance.

Every gift makes a difference to the people and communities we serve. By donating to Providence, you can advance health care and wellness right here in our own community. Your support will improve the lives of all those under our care – especially the poor and the vulnerable. With your help, we are creating healthier communities and providing compassionate care for all.
