Our foundational belief is that all people are created in God’s image and, therefore, are valuable and full of potential. As a result:
- We honor the sacredness of life.
- We see the dignity of every person and serve with love, compassion, and hope.
- We seek just solutions that free, heal, and restore those who are hurting.
- We recognize that families are diverse, yet fundamental to personal well-being and to healthy and prosperous communities.
Thousands of students have graduated from Providence Place’s Disability Services, Oasis Home and Legacy and the large majority hold paying jobs, maintain a home of their own and, in some cases, have married. The stories they tell about their struggle to achieve a basic level of independence are intensely moving. We no longer provide those services, but have maintained relationships with many of the students who once called Providence Place their home.
