About Bob Volke

Cascadia held Bob accountable for taking his medication and attending his therapy sessions.  This structure was important for Bob in learning to live with his mental illness.  But that’s only part of his story.

In starting over, Bob reinvented his life through the friendships and connections he made at his neighborhood coffee shop.  Bob’s network of friends believed in him and helped him stay the course as he developed his technique and embraced his new life as an artist.

Bob’s art was inspired by everyday life, as he saw it in his schizophrenic mind.  This year’s virtual event, ‘Coffee With Bob’, showcases 12 paintings depicting what he saw from his table at his local coffee shop.  We hope you connect in some way with the art and with Bob’s incredible story, and that you consider supporting Cascadia’s community of caring.  We also invite you to reflect on your own community and keep it strong by reaching out to your loved ones.  

You know, meet up for a cup of coffee, perhaps.
