Housing is Healthcare

We bring safe, affordable housing to those who need it most. For 30 years, Cascadia has been a leader in developing and managing safe and affordable housing for Oregon residents with mental illness and addictions. Cascadia owns, operates and/or manages 49 property sites, with 687 units in sites operating as licensed residential, permanent supported housing, and independent housing.

Affordable Housing & Properties

We get support from state and local grants, HOME funds, Community Development Block Grants, the Federal Home Loan Bank program, Department of Housing and Urban Development Capital Advances, Oregon Housing and Community Services Trust Fund and HELP grants, and the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program.

In 2018, we completed our Garlington Campus, one of Oregon’s most innovative community-centered campuses, featuring our new Garlington Health Center and Garlington Place Apartments which together provide integrated health care services – mental health, substance use recovery, primary care, wellness programs, and integrated housing all in one location.


Permanent Supportive Housing

Cascadia provides permanent supportive housing to approximately 240 households throughout Multnomah County through our Housing Supports and Services (Housing Outreach Team and Palm 2 PSH). These programs provide home and community-based services, including housing search and placement services, housing retention services, mental health services —  including case management, skills training, counseling, medication services, and crisis intervention services.

Most of these projects are funded via HUD and serve individuals and families experiencing chronic homelessness, where the head of household has a mental health disability and is Medicaid eligible.  These participants are referred through the Coordinated Access system with Multnomah County,

Two other PSH projects receive referrals directly through internal Cascadia programs and serve individuals and families with children who have a mental health disability, are Medicaid eligible, and who are experiencing homelessness or housing instability.  Short Term Rental Assistance (STRA) is also administered via the Housing Outreach Team for Cascadia-enrolled clients to provide financial assistance for homelessness prevention and rapid rehousing.

Licensed Residential Treatment Programs

Cascadia operates a variety of licensed residential treatment programs, with up to 16 residents at a site.  These programs offer a range of structure including three secure residential treatment facilities. All residential programs focus on transitioning toward more independent housing. All programs work to support recovery, skill building, and health.
