Providence Blanchet & Rossi Houses
Providence Blanchet and Rossi Houses are high-quality, supportive housing programs founded by the Sisters of Providence and owned and managed by Providence Health and Services. Designed and built especially for low-income, aging seniors, 35 private apartments in two adjacent buildings afford all the comforts of home. Each apartment includes full kitchen amenities with a dining area, a private bathroom with tub or walk-in shower, built-in storage and an open floor plan. Shared laundry facilities and welcoming community spaces are available to all residents.
Located in Centralia, Washington, Providence Blanchet and Rossi Houses are nestled among a variety of beautiful trees and meticulously kept grounds with views of the Chehalis River. A lovely pond connects the two houses and is the seasonal home of numerous water fowl. Public transportation provides easy access to local doctors’ offices, banks, grocery stores, churches and entertainment. The community is a perfect choice for comfortable, secure and affordable housing for seniors.
Providence places a high value in supporting individual residents and creating a vibrant community by providing raised garden beds, a shared computer lab with internet access, gathering spaces for resident groups, and a wide variety of scheduled activities including educational and recreational programming. A Service Coordinator can help residents identify and access local resources and services, and can advocate for residents who need assistance.
