Our donors help fund programs and services that otherwise would not exist. With your help, we provide support for families who need financial assistance, create and sustain essential programs not covered by insurance, and fund research to explore new ways to treat – and even cure – our patients.
Thank you for everything you do

Project Nurture saves families Providence Milwaukie Foundation
Project Nurture is a low-barrier outpatient substance abuse treatment program for pregnant women. “Project Nurture not only saves moms, it saves families,” said Kasey Edwards Snider, peer support counselor for the program. Project Nurture provides prenatal care and drug treatment as early in pregnancy as possible and care for the mothers and their infants for up to a year postpartum, providing peer support, case management and advocacy services throughout.
Because of you, our scientists are making life-saving discoveries that are brought to the bedside, our community outreach experts and partners provide programs to help keep people healthy; our services grow to serve expanding needs throughout Oregon; and our teams of doctors, nurses and other caregivers have the latest equipment to serve our patients.
Thank you for everything you do and for all your support in 2019. I personally appreciate all your support and friendship.

Building bridges Providence Newberg Health Foundation
April was at her lowest. She had been through five surgeries for severe endometriosis and her anxiety and depression were becoming overwhelming. She asked her doctor where to get help.
That’s when April learned about the Better Outcomes thru Bridges behavioral health program. A BOB outreach worker comes alongside patients of Providence hospital and some clinics in Oregon, who are experiencing behavioral health issues, need support and/or help with basic needs. The BOB worker provides support and helps bridge the gap to find services the patient or family needs.
Alberto beats the odds Providence Community Health Foundation
Alberto Bello and his wife, Barbara, were running errands when he suddenly felt excruciating pain in his shoulders and broke out in a severe sweat. Before they made it out of the store, Alberto had to sit down due to chest pains and numbness in his left arm. His wife, a nurse at Providence Medford Medical Center and familiar with the signs of a heart attack, called 911. Alberto was hooked up to an EKG during the ambulance ride.
