Housing is Healthcare

We bring safe, affordable housing to those who need it most. For 20 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 or supports more than 50 property sites, representing over 350 units of supported 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 –  anchored by the new Garlington Health Center, which provides integrated health care services – mental health, substance use recovery, primary care, and wellness programs – all in one location to support a person’s whole health needs.

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.

Specialty Housing

Secure Residential Treatment Facilities provide safe, highly structured community reintegration with a focus on prevention, skill building, and a holistic approach toward treatment. Each facility provides residents with supervised access to their community, skill building that promotes health and safety, and the treatment and stabilization of psychiatric and medical issues.

Secure Residential Treatment Facilities are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with access to nursing staff on site, full-time. A licensed medical provider is available by phone for consultation at all times and visits each facility twice weekly.
