Providence Christmas Trees


the catalyst for community care

The basic building blocks for healthy living are well known: food and shelter, mental and physical health care, and human dignity. Addressing these needs can lead to educational, economic, and job opportunities. However, at present, the services offered throughout our community operate as stand-alone programs: access to food, housing assistance, insurance enrollment, and mental and physical health care. 

For individuals with mental health or chemical dependency challenges, navigating this maze can be an insurmountable barrier. Often these barriers put vulnerable individuals on an unintended path that intersects with emergency centers, law enforcement, and jails -- at great cost to us all.

Providence is addressing this need -- together with a generous community -- serving as a catalyst to create a social service hub. This community care center will provide a single point of access for individuals, especially those with mental health challenges, in need of behavioral health, chemical dependency, housing, and many other services. Working collaboratively to maximize outcomes, Providence staff and local non-profits will assist in navigating complex systems to help clients access the services they need in order to break a pervasive cycle and provide the essential components for healthy living. 

The community care center will work with the most stigmatized individuals in our population, providing compassionate care which is unique for each individual. With your help, we will establish the infrastructure needed to build and sustain partnerships, and facilitate collaborative problem solving that reduces the burden on community resources. Together, we will serve those at the heart of the Providence Mission: the poor and most vulnerable.

We need your support to help this center become a reality for our community!
