As individuals within a mission-driven organization, many of us feel very close to our “why.” We choose to be part of Providence Health Care because we value the organization’s long commitment to social justice and compassionate care, and its commitment to the process of Truth and Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples. And we love the “can-do” attitude. When people need help, we’re there. Even if it’s hard, or risky, or unknown. We love that our colleagues share these values and likewise, feel called to help make a real difference in the lives of those we serve every single day.
