AMESBURY – Dave Mansfield, CEO of The Provident Bank, announced this week the Provident Community Charitable Organization has donated $30,000 to The Pettengill House Inc. to assist with expansion of its Amesbury facility.

“Our partnership with local businesses are integral to the success of our programs and social services,” said Deb Smith, executive director of The Pettengill House in a press release. “We are so very grateful to The Provident Bank for their long-standing support of The Pettengill House Inc. and their generous contributions to our agency’s expansion. This is an important step in our continuing effort to provide support services for adults, children and families as the lead social service agency in the area.”

The Pettengill House has locations in Salisbury and Amesbury. This donation will help The Pettengill House double the size of its Amesbury location, and support the organization’s efforts to enhance programs and services and expand outreach in the nine communities it covers, the release said.

The Pettengill House food pantry will remain at the Salisbury location, and the agency will continue to offer comprehensive case management and support services to all of the communities it has served for 25 years.

“The Pettengill House Inc. has been a long-standing community member and partner to The Provident Bank,” Mansfield said. “The assistance they provide to children and families on the North Shore is critical to the well-being of our community. By focusing on individual and family stabilization, and assisting with the most basic human needs of food, clothing, shelter and safety, The Pettengill House Inc. is able to offer assistance to many people who may otherwise not have these basic needs met.”

The Pettengill House is a nonprofit social service agency with experience in providing a system of care to support at-risk individuals, children and families through education and therapeutic intervention.

Its mission is to support and empower children and families by providing education, comprehensive case management and basic needs; and by coordinating community support that contributes to individual and family stabilization, personal growth and development.
