Learn More About Our New Look
For 37 years, we have been Oregon’s community health and housing safety net serving 16,000 Oregonians of all ages experiencing mental health and addiction challenges, trauma, poverty, and homelessness. Recently, we launched our new logo and tagline Whole Health Care™ to visually communicate and reflect the expansion of our health services to include primary care, wellness programs and affordable housing. Watch our video to learn more about our rebranding.
At Cascadia we believe that when we work together to make every effort to understand and care for each other that we build a healthier, thriving community. Our approach to providing integrated healthcare and housing solutions to Oregonians of all ages embodies this and builds on the idea that caring for the whole person is caring for the whole community.
This #GivingTuesday, we ask you to please consider a gift to help us serve community members experiencing mental health challenges, addiction, trauma, poverty and homelessness and build on our shared goal to improve the quality of life for all in our community.Donate Now

Cascadia’s Behavioral Healthcare’s Garlington Center building has been a special part of the Eliot Neighborhood for nearly 80 years. We recognize and honor the building’s history and the role the Center has served in the community, and we acknowledge the shared memories by those expressed from North x Northeast Clinic in this video who also called Cascadia’s Garlington Center home. We look forward to the new Garlington Health & Wellness Center opening Spring 2018 where healing, homes and hope come together to build a culture of caring.

The late Rev. Dr. John W. Garlington Jr. and his wife Yvonne Garlington are remembered as compassionate social justice activists in Oregon during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Their lives were cut short when the two died in a tragic car accident while traveling in Florida, January 16, 1986. Rev. Garlington was 48, Yvonne, 46. They left behind five children.
The Garlington’s memory and contributions to the greater community can be found in numerous places around Portland.
Cascadia’s Garlington Center, a mental health clinic and social services center located at 3034 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, was named in 1989 in honor of Rev. Garlington and Yvonne. Their legacy continues wherever care and compassion preside over Portland, including at the Garlington Campus, featuring The Garlington Health Center and Housing, opening Spring 2018 at the same address.
Special thanks to the Garlington family for their dedication to the community.
