Kateri Park kids make slime with Timbers and Thorns

As part of the 2018 Stand Together Week, the Portland Timbers and Thorns visited the property Kateri Park to make slime and have some fun with the kids of this community.

Gavin Wilkinson, Timbers and Thorns FC General Manager, Giovanni Savarese, head coach, along with Fanendo Adi and Larrys Mabiala joined Thorns Tyler Lussi and Kelli Hubly to participate of this event.

"These kids are coming from a long way, so to be here and make them smile and see them enjoy the moment is just fantastic", said Adi, footballer who plays as a striker for the Portland Timbers of Major League Soccer.

With the help of local community partners and the city of Portland, the Portland Timbers, T2 and Portland Thorns FC presented, during June 9 to June 15, their seventh annual Stand Together Week 2018. The comprehensive, week-long community initiative supported dozens of nonprofit projects and volunteer opportunities across the city. Each year, the State of Oregon and City of Portland officially proclaim the week as the Portland Timbers & Thorns FC Stand Together Week.

Stand Together is the relationship between the Portland Timbers, Portland Thorns FC and their fans and signifies the commitment they have to being champions on and off the field. Since 2012, Stand Together Week participants donated 15,371 hours of service at more than 193 events benefitting youth and the environment in the greater-Portland area. This project range from outdoor park and garden maintenance to construction projects and assisting in special youth and community initiatives. 



Kateri Park is an affordable housing community run through Catholic Charities, located just south of Powell on 28th Avenue. In more than half of our apartments, the residents are refugees. The largest group is from Somalia, but we also have some Burmese and Ethiopian refugee families.

I have been working for Cascade Management for over 30 years. It has been a pleasure to work for this company. They are very family oriented; which has allowed me time to be active in raising my three daughters and now to enjoy time with my grandchildren. I have learned so much working for Cascade. They are helpful in keeping up with all the changes that have taken place in subsidized housing. It has been very rewarding helping people and watching their growth and advancement in life. My time here should speak for what a great company I think Cascade Management is, they have treated me like family.

I have worked at Cascade Management for over eight years, so I have had the opportunity to see the company grow and change during that time. The company's growth has challenged me personally to fine tune my skills which has been very beneficial to me professionally. Cascade Management continues to retain the "team" atmosphere that first attracted me to the company and I appreciate the availability and accessibility of my co-workers in the corporate offices.

As Cascade Management continues to grow it retains a friendly and cooperative work culture. If I have a problem at my property, I know there are staff members who will work with me to help resolve it. This applies to all levels of the company, from maintenance to marketing, accounting, and program compliance.  I appreciate how everyone in the company makes a meaningful contribution to the smooth operation of my building. Good property management is a team effort. Not all companies are so successful in integrating all of the aspects of property management into a successful team.
