Who We Serve
Cascade Life Alliance serves the families of organ donors, hospital partners, transplant centers that care for recipients, and a variety of workplace partners.
Our commitment to save lives through organ donation starts with support of organ donors and their families. We begin developing relationships with donor families during the potential donor’s hospitalization. We work with family members to honor their loved one and attempt to meet the diverse needs of every family we encounter. Our family support continues through the donor’s hospitalization and after, as each family copes with life after loss.
Saving lives through organ donation is dependent upon the generosity of donors and their families as well as the partnerships of the many teams and organizations with whom we work. Because of this selfless giving, and the collaborative relationships with hospitals throughout Oregon, SW Washington and Western Idaho, we are able to respect and honor the donation decision of patients and their families.
We work with transplant centers across the nation to serve the many recipients waiting for transplantable organs. Our local transplant centers include Oregon Health & Science University, Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital, the Portland VA Medical Center, and Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.
We work directly with Community Tissue Services, Lions VisionGift, and Envision. In some cases, we work with reputable research organizations that enhance medical treatments and find cures for human diseases. Donate Life Northwest and YesIdaho! are the public education agencies whose mission is to save and enhance lives through the promotion of organ, eye, and tissue donation.
