Volunteer for CODA

CODA volunteer groups include students, retired people, faith-based communities, service clubs, recovering adults, teachers and business people. They help paint CODA residences, plant gardens, make afghans, host barbecues, even organize closets. Some hold events to raise funds or donate items our residents and visiting children need: toys, furniture, towels and linens, clothing and toiletries.

If you would like to talk about how your group can volunteer, please contact Stephen Cassell, Director of Marketing and Individual Gifts, 971-202-7763.

Volunteer Spotlight: Junior League of Portland!


Members of the Junior League of Portland came to CODA armed with paint, brushes–and an impressive amount of energy–when they spent Saturday, Oct. 5 at the agency’s Portland Recovery Center.

CODA was one of several area agencies that benefited from the tireless work of the Junior League volunteers. It was all part of “JLP CAREs day,” which stands for “Community Action and Revitalization Event.” These events combine fundraising for JLP and provide important support for essential agencies like CODA. JLP members, family, friends and supporters raise funds for their organization by sponsoring volunteers as they carry out projects like this one for essential agencies.
