We would like to clarify that while we are a non-profit religious organization sensitive to the needs of all of our community members, we are not licensed therapists or counselors and cannot provide these services. We are happy to direct you or your family in the right direction though!

Volunteer Hours 

Many Columbia members donate their time, energy, and resources to help support the local Pagan and Non-Pagan communities here in Oregon and around the world.

 

For those able-bodied we do frequent hands-on plantings and land stewardship activities. We also host fundraisers and events that can be accessible to everyone!
