Providing space for hope and healing from addiction

By awarding a $1.5M capital grant to De Paul Treatment Center’s Visionary Campaign for Hope and Recovery as an early funder, The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund is ensuring that De Paul will have the means to achieve its goal of building a new Center for Hope and Recover. De Paul is an independent non-profit Oregon-based organization that works with individuals, families, and communities to create freedom from addiction.

Grant funds will go towards the construction of a purpose-built facility where De Paul will deliver trauma-informed behavioral healthcare at a transit-accessible location in Southeast Portland. The grant will help adults and youth recover and find the hope they need to make a change.

Inspiring others to give and create change for good

“The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund’s capital investment in De Paul’s new facility will have a lasting impact on our entire community. With this new facility, De Paul will have space to deliver whole-person care in a trauma informed treatment environment. De Paul is deeply grateful for MCMF’s longtime partnership and support for individuals and families struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. A leader in De Paul’s fundraising efforts, MCMF has inspired other funders to commit to our vital project and has brought us closer to completing our campaign goal.” –Laura van her Veer, MPA, Development Officer, De Paul Treatment Centers

 The Impact

De Paul’s new Center for Hope and Recovery will have the capacity to serve 648 individuals at a given time across the full continuum of care for substance use disorder treatment. This continuum of care includes medical withdrawal management, residential treatment, day treatment, and an outpatient clinic. The new facility will also include gathering spaces for families and community meeting rooms, which will expand their ability to have an impact among the recovery community.
