Fiscal Year 2009 Annual Report                           The Providence Center
Message from the CEO


Over the past 40 years, our vision has been guided by our mission to provide the best
possible and most effective services to our clients. As we celebrate the past and look
to a future filled with possibilities, that vision continues to be the hallmark of our
future. As we move forward, we build on our foundation of compassionate care
with innovation, responsibility and dedication.

The Providence Center’s foundation is the belief that our clients’ needs are best
served in the community with a full continuum of care that addresses the whole
person. From counseling and medication to education, wellness, housing and
employment, our clients’ unique needs have always been, and always will be,
met with care and compassion.

One of the keys to our future success is rooted in innovation and technology.
It’s no secret that funding cuts have seriously impacted the behavioral health field.
As funding is reduced, we must react positively and proactively with creative,
innovative changes that use technology to develop efficient, effective ways to
bring health and hope to the people we serve.

Another key to our future is that we remain good fiscal stewards. As president/CEO,
I take this responsibility very seriously. We have been entrusted with resources by
the State of Rhode Island, health insurers, our donors, our friends and our clients.
This is a privilege, and it’s important that we spend the dollars we’ve been given
wisely, prudently and appropriately.

Along with being good fiscal stewards comes the responsibility to serve as a leading public
voice on issues that are important to our clients and the behavioral health field. Historically,
The Providence Center has advocated for its clients and the rights of all citizens. We believe that
everyone has the right to lead a full and meaningful life and that we have a responsibility to challenge
those aspects of the system that may stand in the way of that right.

Providing our clients with exceptional services would not be possible without our dedicated employees.
They are our greatest asset. At The Providence Center, we work hard to create an environment that
recognizes, supports, rewards and challenges our employees because without them, The Providence
Center would not exist.

Over the past 40 years, hundreds of thousands of people have turned to The Providence Center for help.
They look to us with faces filled with hope and dreams for a better life. They are the faces of our past;
they are the faces of our present, and they are the reason The Providence Center will be here tomorrow.

   the past 40 years.
                          trustees, donors and staff.

                          Their voices combine to tell a story rooted in The Providence Center’s past and present.

                          Some have watched The Providence Center grow from a small mental health clinic with
                          only a handful of employees to a large organization serving over 10,000 people each year.
                          Some talk about what The Providence Center means to them. And some talk about how
                          The Providence Center saved their lives.

                          But whether they are part of our past or present, they all have one thing in common:
                          They have built a solid foundation for our future.

                          This annual report is dedicated to our trustees, donors, staff and the hundreds of thousands
                          of clients whose lives have been touched by The Providence Center over the past 40 years.
