We are grateful for our sponsors, donors, guests, volunteers, and our community partners for joining us in our goal to open the new Garlington Health & Wellness Center in spring 2018.

Our Gala featured an incredible circle of Portland community members, supporters, volunteers, caregivers, artists and musicians who collectively Bridge a Culture of Caring throughout Portland. Thank you for creating a remarkable evening in support of mental health care, wellness and affordable housing for all!
