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.

Annual Giving Campaign

Thank you for your commitment to Cascadia and the meaningful impacts you make through our Annual Giving Campaign. Last year’s campaign secured plumbing repairs to Kaspar House that were completed in June as well as hosting three volunteers. This year, ACCESSIBILITY was a recurring theme as we looked to our needs, and in particular accessible garden beds and table looms. Both offer meaningful connection and tactile stimulation while creating beautiful results that can be shared. Continuing our Volunteer Program also makes a significant difference to all at Cascadia.

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.


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.
