Community benefit investments are one way Providence lives its Mission. For generations, we’ve offered a caring hand to those with the greatest need in our community.
In 2018, we devoted more than $29.6 million in community benefit to make sustainable improvements in the health of our communities throughout Montana.
Community Health Needs Assessments
In the face of rapidly changing health care, our commitment to our Mission to care for everyone remains unchanged. When the Sisters of Providence made their way Montana over 140 years ago, they faced many unknown challenges and succeeded in their simple but significant Mission: to serve the poor, sick and vulnerable - without counting cost - with courage and grace.
This ministry greatly depends on partnering with others in the community who are equally committed to doing good and improving the health of all. Together with community partners we conduct community health assessments to understand what our community needs are. Then with our partners, we identify the greatest unmet needs among the people in the communities we serve. These include lack of access to affordable care; lack of access to mental health services; poverty and homelessness; and barriers to healthy behaviors and disease prevention.
