Healing. Homes. Hope.

These three words capture the heart of Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare. Our 900+ dedicated employees work at 75+ locations in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, Marion and Lane Counties, helping 16,000 people each year living with mental health, addiction and homelessness challenges.

We are a major nonprofit 501(c)3 healthcare provider in Oregon for mental health and addiction treatment services. We also provide supported housing and permanent housing to more than 600 individuals. Cascadia is unique in providing a full continuum of services to children, families, adults and older adults.

The most effective way to help people solve their problems is to give them a home and the treatment they need.

“Working for a nonprofit mental health and addictions provider is not for the faint of heart. Our employees take on life’s most difficult issues — joblessness, homelessness, social isolation, severe symptoms of psychosis, depression, addictions, gambling… I am fiercely proud of Cascadia’s staff and my gratitude for their work carries me through every single day.”

— Derald Walker, Cascadia President/CEO
