Community Resilience

Together with our many partners, the Providence family of organizations invests in the power of communities by helping to build capacity and resilience. Whether at home or abroad, we respond to the root causes of disparities, improve infrastructure, and provide education in neighborhoods, regions and countries that are historically underserved. We also respond to unprecedented challenges and crises to help communities recover and grow stronger. Examples of this work are featured here in our Community Investment Stories.
