A familiar name in philanthropic donations has stepped up again to help make a new integrated health care center and housing project a reality in Northeast Portland.

Meyer Memorial Trust has awarded $750,000 to Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare for the nonprofit's new clinic at Garlington Center. The funding support includes a two-year, $250,000 grant and program-related investment of $500,000 to support renovation and redevelopment. The MMT funds are conditional on the project receiving further funding support in spring of 2016.

"We are striving to create a valued space where being mindful and treating the whole body is easy and accessible for our community, and where living in a central neighborhood is affordable for everyone,” said Derald Walker, president and CEO of Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare, in a release. “This award is incredibly helpful for setting the course on this project."

When complete, the new Garlington Center will provide integrated affordable housing, behavioral health services and a neighborhood wellness center for a wide range of individuals. The center will included more than 50 new apartments for low-income, qualifying individuals.

It will also offer mental health and addiction services, an on-site medical team and a wellness center accessible to residents, clients and the greater community.

Cascadia's 1.5-acre Garlington Center campus is located at 3034 N.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
