The mission of Cascadia Health (formerly Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare) is to deliver whole health care – integrated mental health and addiction services, primary care, and housing – to promote hope and support the well-being of the communities we serve.
Bottom Line for Portland
Broad community support of Cascadia’s whole health care model has meant lower health care costs, improved quality of care and improved outcomes for community members.
Donating to Cascadia’s whole health care mission means:
•Supporting more than 18,000 community members with integrated health care services and affordable housing solutions, specifically individuals facing chronic mental health challenges and other health disparities.
•Ensuring comprehensive primary care services remain available to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.
•Providing flexible client assistance funds to mitigate barriers to housing and healthcare including eviction prevention funds, one-time rental assistance, utility costs, motel and meal vouchers, and low-cost cell phones.
•Joining a movement and ending the stigma of mental illness.
Given the long-term mental health impacts that will extend well beyond this pandemic, donations to Cascadia allow us to meet the increased demand for services while evolving the way we support community members.
“Working with Cascadia gave me a whole new world. I couldn’t believe I was afforded another chance, and my life was able to start again.” – M, Cascadia client
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Cascadia recognizes that racism, particularly anti-black racism, is a public health crisis. We commit to being culturally affirming and responsive; to implement recruitment, hiring, and promotional practices that move Cascadia to more closely reflect and represent the communities we serve; to challenge ourselves to address health disparities and remove barriers to whole health care, and to hold ourselves accountable at all levels of leadership in implementing policy and practices put forth in this regard.
