Our History

1970 – A group of parents begin “Special Projects for the Handicapped” in order to support their children with disabilites who, at the time, could not be served by the public schools.

1981 – The organization begins to focus upon vocational rehabilitation for adults with disabilites and changes the name to “Provident Industries”.

1982 – At the same time, “Horizons of Sunnyside” opens its doors to provide similar services in the Lower Yakima Valley.

1993 – Provident Industries expands its programming to include employment, education, and vocational training services. The Yakima organization is renamed “Provident Services” to reflect the change in mission.

2005 – Provident Services merges with Horizons of Sunnyside to form the Provident Horizon Group. With service centers located in Yakima, Sunnyside, Ellensburg, and the Tri-Cities area, PHG can ensure easy access to communities for people with disabilites living thorughout Central Washington.

2009 – Provident Horizon Group expands its services to include opportunities for increased access to education and healthcare. These changes lead to Provident Horizon Group becoming Entrust Community Services.
