Thank You Providence for Your Incredible Support!

Thank You To Providence, A YWCA Spokane Mission Partner

Continuing a tradition of caring that the Sisters of Providence began more than 165 years ago, Providence Health Care remains dedicated to creating healthier communities for a better world. As one of our valued Mission Partners, Providence Health Care has come alongside YWCA Spokane year after year to provide critical funds and expertise as we work together to end domestic violence in our community and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Providence Health Care’s Mission Partner Impact

YWCA Spokane’s 2020 impact would not have been possible without the support of Providence Health Care. 

In addition to providing us with key event sponsorships that enabled us to raise the additional funds we need to bridge the gaps between expenses we incur while serving clients and the grants we receive from state, local, and private parties, Providence has stepped alongside YWCA Spokane with their expertise as a healthcare provider to partner with us in innovative approaches to end intimate partner domestic violence.

For the last several years Providence has been providing dedicated funding for the Intimate Partner Violence Hospital Response Program, a partnership between YWCA Spokane, Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children’s Hospital and Providence Holy Family Hospital, which connects victims of intimate partner violence (IPV) with trained advocates through partnerships with healthcare providers and law enforcement to mitigate the impacts of IPV on both victims and their children.

This past year Providence provided a grant for a partnership between YWCA Spokane and the Spokane Regional Domestic Violence Coalition (SRDVC), to support the creation and implementation of an End the Violence Toolkit for Businesses that will help businesses and organizations recognize signs of violence and improve the way they are addressing and responding to domestic violence in the workplace.

“These partnerships with Providence Health Care illustrate their desire to take a proactive approach to the need in our community. Together with Providence we want to prevent situations before they become lethal and create more awareness around the issues of Intimate Partner Domestic Violence. It is programs like these that create the potential to end the violence.” – Terran Echegoyen, YWCA Spokane Counseling Center Manager

From The Bottom Of Our Hearts, Thank You Providence For Your Incredible Support.

We are incredibly grateful to Providence for providing critical care to our community on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic, and for their dedication to making a difference in the lives of every person we serve at YWCA Spokane. Thank you for staying by our side for over 18 years, for your commitment to this work, and for helping to ensure YWCA Spokane’s vital services remain available.

Thank you, to our friend and board member, Anna Franklin, Regional Director of Clinical Effectiveness, our 2020 Women of Achievement (WOA) keynote speaker and 2015 WOA award honoree, Peg Currie, Chief Operating Officer of Providence Healthcare and Chief Executive at Sacred Heart Medical Center and Holy Family Hospital, and to all of our friends at Providence, for your partnership and generosity!
