Mission: As people of providence, we reveal god's love for all, especially the poor and vulnerable, through our compassionate service. To support providence benedictine nursing center.
Programs: Since 1955, providence benedictine nursing center (pbnc) has been a model of excellence, innovation and best practices that include spiritual and emotional support in addition to physical care. Contributions towards operating funds help pbnc better serve the frail elderly. Donations were used to help fund improvements to three patient/resident shower rooms. The funds were part of operation bubble bath that was raised specifically to improve the bathing experience at pbnc. Foundation funds were used for equipment needs of ten residents who had no ability to pay for them. The funds paid for two specialty wheelchairs, the repair of two electric wheelchairs and the purchase of special equipment. Donor funds allowed pbnc to hire a horticultural therapist for 10 weeks. This person worked directly with residents doing gardening activities and with pbnc's rehab staff in order to facilitate better use of the garden for therapy. She also spent part of her time maintaining the gardens. The gardens at pbnc have become part of the culture and lifestyle at pbnc.
