Each week Providence Farm provides over 180 program spaces to adults living with mental health, substance use, brain injury, age-related illness, and developmental disabilities.
We provide experiences that are person-centered and inclusive, building a community founded on the principles of Nature Based Therapy and Trauma Informed Practices.
Together, our “Farmily” cares for each other and the land, while focusing on holistic development, learning and growth.
Every dollar helps us, to help others.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Providence Farm is actively seeking new Board Members to act as trustees of the organization, and fulfill our mission of serving the needs and fostering the talents of people in the Cowichan Valley, especially those not easily accepted elsewhere.
We operate as a Policy Governance Board. This means the Board provides oversight and guidance for the organization, but is not involved in operations. It also means that we are ambassadors and advocates for Providence Farm.
Our current Board Members come from a variety of different backgrounds including business, social work, farming and mental health. This group is dedicated to providing balanced and effective governance.
As a group, we are interested in welcoming new members. Individuals with experience in law, forestry and fundraising are especially encouraged to apply.
If you are a community minded individual that may be interested in joining our Board of Directors, please review the job description and application below.
To apply, please email a completed application to ProvFarm@providence.bc.ca
The Board Chair will contact you after your application has been received.
