| Family Promise SCV Receives Grant From Providence Hospital

To celebrate the power of the partnership, this week the three Providence hospitals in the San Fernando Valley donated a total of $ 400,000 from the Mother Joseph Fund to 15 nonprofit groups, including Family Promise of Santa Clarita Valley, serving the most vulnerable in the serve the community.

The grants were provided by the Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center, and Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, which hosted the event in the hospital chapel.

These Partners for a Better Community celebrations began in 2013 in honor of Mother Joseph Pariseau, who led a group of Sisters of Providence from Montreal to the American Northwest in 1856 and established what is now a 52-hospital health system in seven western states.

The groups selected for funding offer programs for vulnerable population groups, including the homeless, victims of domestic violence, drug use disorders or physical and mental health problems.

“Service to the poor and the weak is in our DNA,” said Shawn Kiley, chief mission officer at Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana.

The goal of the partnerships is to work with like-minded, mission-minded partners who are experts in their fields and who are committed to improving the overall health of underserved populations, said Judie Wilkie, chair of the Providence Community Ministry Board’s Mission Committee – San Fernando Valley Rest Area .

An advisory group made up of representatives from the Wilkie Committee selected these organizations to receive grants:

– Santa Clarita Valley Family Promises

– BCR “A place to grow, Burbank”

– Burbank Noon Lions charities

– Catholic Charities Guadalupe Center, Canoga Park

– Senior Services Foundation, Glendale

– Hands 4 Hope LA, North Hollywood

– Haven Hills, Canoga Park

– Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission, locations in the San Fernando Valley

– Fulfill every need with dignity (MEND), Pacoima

– Mid Valley Family YMCA, Van Nuys

– Film and TV Fund, Calabasas

– National Alliance for Mental Illness, San Fernando Valley, Van Nuys

– Therapeutic residential centers for the blind, Reseda

– Valley Family Center, San Fernando

– West Valley Family YMCA, Reseda

These organizations applied for funding and described how it would be used. A large part of the funds made available went into services for the growing number of homeless people in the valley and the surrounding communities. Other recipients serve people with disabilities, people with food insecurity, parents in need of childcare, and people with mental health problems.

This spirit of partnership dates back 165 years when the Sisters of Providence worked with their communities to build schools, orphanages, and hospitals. In 2016, Providence and Orange County’s St. Joseph Health teamed up to create a new organization, Providence.
