Take a deep B R E A T H, because our purpose is very simple. It is to offer you a way to be completely SELF-RELIANT during this time of uncertainty. Are you prepared to survive for 1-Week, 1-Month, or 1-Year if there really was a Massive Disaster or a Great Depression?

Why join? Let me ask you a question... if YOU are not prepared, how many of your neighbors are unprepared too? What would happen if there was no food or clean water available for weeks or months? Sound expensive to be prepared? It's not, really.

Why join? Imagine that many of your neighbors ARE PREPARED. In this scenario, you could not only help each other but also others in need, making your community a much safer place to live.

All the information is FREE. Our desire is to inform our neighbors (YOU), so that our families and the greater community is as safe as possible should the worst happen. Join us and invite your friends, your family, and your neighbors, so that we can all be prepared together!

The following link is full of valuable information, enjoy!


Be Well,

The Provident Living Committee
