Welcome to Washington's 2023 Annual Report

In Washington State, we are committed to working outside our ministry and campus walls to reach deeper into the communities we serve. We proactively and consciously invest in partnerships and programs to improve care and equity for the most vulnerable among us.

During 2023, Providence ministries and affiliates invested $885 million in community benefit across Washington. A few highlights:

  • Providence Inland Northwest Washington’s Family Promise focuses on comprehensive solutions for housing families. Our $150,000 community benefit investment in 2023 helped the organization fund homelessness prevention, emergency housing and long-term stabilization services in Spokane.
  • Since 2020, Providence Swedish’s Cultural Navigation Program has focused on access to care for underserved communities. In 2023 alone, the program served more than 955 patients with identified language or cultural barriers; co-hosted five mobile mammogram events; served more than 1,100 neighbors at community events; and attended more than 35 community health events to support vaccination and screening efforts.

These are only a few examples. We hope you’ll read the rest of our report to learn more about the work we’re doing in communities across the state.

We thank every one of our partners for their collaboration, and we thank you for your interest in this work.
