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 now 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.

We are a refuge for women who have survived horrific trauma through our My Mariposa Home, which provides solace and allows the women to regain their dignity. We also serve as an education center where young parents can learn life skills so that they and their children may thrive through our Parenting with a Purpose program.”
