Sounder players together on the playing field

Providence and Seattle Sounders FC Partnership

Providence is proud to partner with Seattle Sounders FC in a game-changing partnership that goes beyond the field and into the well-being of the community.

We believe collaboration between organizations and people will bring attention and support to the current youth mental health crisis. We’re bringing people together through the love of soccer.

Starting here at home with the Renton School District, we’re using our platforms to improve mental health resources for youth. Here’s how:

  • Increase access to mental health services
  • Create safe spaces for kids to play
  • Foster a culture to help kids prioritize their mental well-being and support their friends
  • Provide in-person and virtual events using the Work2BeWell curriculum, developed through Providence’s Well Being Trust

Our goal: make mental health resources accessible to people of all ages.

Providence’s mission is to provide health for a better world. Partnering with Seattle Sounders helps us improve the health of the people we serve.

Community Assist of the Match

We have joined our partners in community, Seattle Sounders FC, to create a recognition program celebrating individuals or organizations that exemplify the following long-term commitments to at least one of the following:

  • Fight racism
  • Protect our planet
  • Stand for LGBTQ+ equality
  • Defend the right to play
  • Positively impact mental and physical wellness

At each home match, we will proudly recognize an exceptional nominee as Providence’s “Community Assist of the Match.” This spotlight is not just about acknowledging their efforts but also about elevating their cause and inspiring others to get involved.

Visit the Community Assist website to nominate an individual or organization making a positive impact.
