Now in existence for almost 50 years, Providence Community Health Centers, Inc. strives to expand offerings to better meet the needs of the community. 
Our mission is critical to Providence—we provide neighborhood-based, high-quality care to more than 50,000 Providence area residents, many of whom would not otherwise have access to affordable care. With 11 facilities in the city, PCHC contributes to the city’s economy and community redevelopment, and with 400 employees, we provide substantial employment opportunities to local residents.


We need your support to keep our programs and facilities accessible and affordable: Please join us for the Providence Community Health Centers’ 11thAnnual Golf Tournament at Shelter Harbor Golf Club in Charlestown, RI on Wednesday, June 7, 2017. This is an important annual fundraiser for PCHC and a fun day on this beautiful golf course too.


For sponsorship details, to add your name to the reservation list, or for more information on the Golf benefit, please contact Deb Spicuzza, Executive Assistant, at 401-444-0400 x 3160 or send an email.

Providence Community Health Centers has been hosting Give Kids A Smile event for 8 years as a way to provide free dental care to local children who desperately need it. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention nearly one in four children aged 2 to 11 years old have untreated cavities in their baby teeth. Many children enrolled in Medicaid receive no dental services throughout the year.

  • Last year (2016) we had a great turn out – Seeing a total of 86 patients of which 78 were new to PCHC! Our Dentist and Hygienist performed over 76 cleanings, 83 exams, 52 x-rays, and 7 extractions.

The American Dental Association (ADA) launched the Give Kids A Smile program nationally in 2003 as a way for dentists to join with others in the community to provide dental services to underserved children. Each year 350,000 to 400,000 children benefit from more than 1,500 events, all because of the efforts of 40,000 or more annual volunteers nationwide.

Give Kids A Smile is held annually to:

  • Provide free, easily accessible dental services to qualifying individuals.
  • Raise awareness of the epidemic of untreated dental disease occurring locally and nationally and create local public and private partnerships to increase access to oral health care to solve this crisis.

PCHC Dental Clinic will be sponsoring our annual Give Kids A Smile event on Friday, April 21st,
