Providence Hospitals Give Grants

Three Providence hospitals in the Valley area presented $400,000 worth of grants to 15 nonprofit groups that serve vulnerable populations. 

Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana and Providence Saint Joseph in Burbank provided the grants, which will go to programs that benefit vulnerable populations such as the homeless, victims of domestic violence and those with substance use disorders, among others. 

“Serving the poor and vulnerable is in our DNA,” Shawn Kiley, chief mission officer at Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana, said in a statement. 

The organizations receiving the money include groups such as the Therapeutic Living Centers for the Blind, the West Valley Family YMCA and Catholic Charities Guadalupe Center. The 15 organizations are based in different parts of the San Fernando Valley, from Reseda and Van Nuys to Canoga Park and San Fernando.  

“The goal of the partnerships is to collaborate with like-minded, mission-focused partners who are experts in their fields and committed to improving the overall health of under-served populations,” Judie Wilkie, chairwoman of the Mission Committee of the Providence Community Ministry Board – San Fernando Valley Service Area, said in a statement.
