Caregivers Live Out the Providence Mission at Project Homeless Connect
Published July 21, 2014
The Providence mission is to “reveal God’s love to all, especially the poor and vulnerable, through our compassionate service.” Providence caregivers truly lived out that mission by serving at the Project Homeless Connect. A total of 40 Providence caregivers attended the event, volunteering their time to care for the needs of the poor and vulnerable in our community.
Throughout the event, Providence caregivers were able to provide foot care treatments, safe scalp checks, blood pressure screenings, as well as stroke and diabetes education, touching over 450 lives. Shoes, socks, toiletry items and clothes donated prior to the event were also handed out to those in need.
Sharon Steele, senior administration assistant for nursing administration, has been involved with Project Homeless Connect for four years as the volunteer coordinator for the Professional Excellence Council. “We would like to express our gratitude to all who contributed to Project Homeless Connect,” Steele said. “You all helped to make it a great success."
