Our mission at Providence Place is to truly be a community where residents, team members, and families can all be involved in making decisions and creating a fantastic place to live & work. Finding purpose and contributing is a major factor in experiencing fulfilling days.

We were proud to honor some outstanding residents at the Collegeville Inn for all they do in and outside of our community. 👏

Our Pottsville Executive Chef, Jake, collaborated on a special dining event for community life programming — we like to call “Dine In with Chef Jake”. 👨‍🍳

Jake planned an Italian themed night, cooked and presented the meal in our private dining room. The menu consisted of fresh made Caesar salad with scratch made dressing, pasta with red or white sauce with your choice of protein. The protein options were steak, chicken, shrimp, or scallops. Bananas Foster was the dessert. 🍽

The residents enjoyed this event!
