Who We Are

Our Mission Statement

The Cascadia Society for Social Working contributes to society by creating opportunities for people of all abilities to fulfill their potential through living, learning and working in community.

Program Description

The Cascadia Society is a life-sharing community that includes adults with special needs. Cultural, artistic and therapeutic experiences are provided through residential home care and day activities within the urban setting of Vancouver’s North Shore. The Cascadia Society is dedicated to bringing healing to human beings and to the earth. Their primary task is to allow the potential in each person to unfold and to be in harmonious relationship with the environment.

Philosophy

In Cascadia, we strive to build a community that celebrates each individual and can make a social and cultural contribution to society. We hold the image of man as described in the western philosophy of Rudolf Steiner and the principles of Anthroposophy and the International Camphill Movement. Coworkers care for the well being of the human spirit within all of us regardless of ability level.
