Providence Community Wellness Center - Pacoima
The Providence Community Wellness Center at the Vaughn Family and Community Center in Pacoima, is located in the North East San Fernando Valley, serving Pacoima, Arleta, San Fernando and adjoining communities. The Center is committed to providing adults and families with the tools, services and resources to meet identified social, mental and health needs. The Center provides services and programs focusing on physical, spiritual, emotional and mental well-being to all in need.
Our Providence vision of “health for a better world” is accomplished through collaborations, partnerships and linkages with various community partners, ranging from community organizations, schools, faith-based institutions and medical centers.
In Pacoima, our successful partnership with Vaughn Next Century Charter School allows us to fulfill our promise of building stronger communities, together. The Pacoima center, along with two others that recently opened in Van Nuys and Burbank, serve low-income residents who have limited access to health care and education. Providence, a nonprofit, uses its surplus funds to pay for these community centers. Click here to read more!
