Garlington Place Apartments & Garlington Health Center

The Garlington Campus is 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. The Center began serving clients in early September 2018.

Adjacent to the Center is Garlington Place, a 52-unit affordable housing apartment building that opened in April 2018 integrated with Cascadia clients, veterans, and displaced North and Northeast Portland community members and families. Within the 52 units, there are 10 units designated for people with mental illness, eight units designated for formerly homeless veterans, 33 units for households who qualified through the City of Portland’s N/NE Preference Policy and one unit for the on-site manager. The project completed construction in March 2018 and was fully leased and occupied by the end of April. It highlights the strong demand for integrated housing, as well as Cascadia’s capacity to quickly and successfully house individuals and families with mental illness.

The campus is named in honor of the late Rev. Dr. John W. Garlington, Jr., and Mrs. Yvonne Garlington, who championed social justice in Portland. Their advocacy encompassed issues affecting the African-American community, access to education, employment, healthcare, police-community relations, and a voice for those experiencing poverty, mental illness, and homelessness.

The health center incorporates artwork that reflects local, social and cultural significance. These works, by prominent Portland artists Anne Crumpacker, Jeremy Okai Davis, Hilary Pfeifer, and Arvie Smith, form the core of Cascadia’s new Garlington Health Center Art Collection.
