"Giving is an act of generosity. Giving is sowing a seed.  The seed will produce great harvest of fruits."
Lailah Gifty Akita

Each week, we offer over 180 program spaces to adults and seniors with mental health issues, brain injuries, and developmental challenges who are able to participate in the Farm's therapeutic and vocational training programs.
For 39 Years, The Vancouver Island Providence community Association (VIPCA) has been providing creative and innovative programs for people in this community at Providence Farm.


"Thank you for helping our program. The farm is important to clients like me because it is like family."  

Heather, Providence Farm Client.

Every dollar helps us to make meaningful lives for some of our more disadvantaged community members.

Annual Giving

Annual Giving Campaign

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our Annual Giving Campaign so far!

We are grateful to report that this past year has been a joyful one for us here at Providence. We have lots to celebrate as the year comes to a close and a new one rounds the corner.


With the support of our generous donors continuing, we were able to welcome many new friends into programming this year and to make some important steps towards continuing to improve the services we provide.


As the season of giving returns to us this year, we reach out as a FARMILY to all of our friends and supporters in the greater community, asking that those who have room to share consider giving to Providence once again.


All donations directly support Programming here at the Farm; furthering the care and support we are able to offer. Every dollar helps.

If you have room to give this year, please click the donate button below.
