Support Cascadia in Willamette Week’s Annual Give!Guide Campaign

Throughout November and December, Join Us for Giving Opportunities Aimed at Creating a Whole Community

As we head into the holiday season, Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare is excited to announce that we are a part of the Willamette Week’s Give!Guide campaign once again.

Give!Guide is an annual fundraising campaign benefiting hundreds of nonprofits that are doing impactful work in our community. Throughout November and December, Give!Guide offers interactive events, donation opportunities and incentives to individuals who share the goal of creating a stronger community through giving. Donations are encouraged at every level, with a $10 minimum.

This past year, Cascadia impacted over 18,000 community members of all ages experiencing mental health and addiction challenges. We provided preventative primary care to 900-plus clients, helped reduce emergency room visits by 18 percent, offered housing and supportive housing to more than 1,000 Oregonians, and influenced the lens through which our clients are viewed through advocacy and support. With your support, we hope to continue providing services for those in need and reach even more individuals in 2020.

This year, Cascadia has a goal of raising $15,000 – this may sound like a big number, but giving even ten dollars can make a profound impact on someone in need:

  • A gift of $10 will provide a family of three with hygiene supplies (such as three toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss and a pack of soap) for one month from our Housing Outreach Team
  • A gift of $100 will allow our Street Outreach Team to provide a personal hygiene station (tent, bucket and biohazard bags) for an individual experiencing homelessness
  • A gift of $250 supports three months of utility expenses for an individual or family utilizing our housing services
  • A gift of $500 ensures one month of rental assistance to help a family avoid eviction.

Knowing you’ve made a real impact is its own gift, but there are also some exciting incentives for individuals who choose to support Cascadia in this year’s Give!Guide. First, Pacific Office Automation will match the first $5,000 in donations. Additionally, donations of $25 or more will receive a free coffee or bagel sandwich from Henry Higgins. Lastly, the first 15 donors of $250 or more get a free unlimited People’s Yoga Pass for a month.

Join us with a gift today at bit.ly/Cascadia-GiveGuide2019  to support our goal. And, make sure to follow along on Cascadia’s social media pages for updates on Give!Guide events, giving incentives and more.

Happy giving!
