Cow Creek’s Story

The Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians recognizes the importance of mental health care for our region.

Generosity Develops

The Tribe has made a major investment in Asante’s Behavioral Health Initiative to develop and enhance the quality of life in our community.

The core values of the Tribe include supporting strong children, family and communities. Special emphasis is placed on enhancing people’s health and wellbeing. As part of the Tribe’s CEDAR program (Community, Economics, Development and Recovery), they are helping to lead the charge in addressing the importance of behavioral health through awareness and supporting other organizations and partners.

“No one organization can do this alone. But it is such a need. Behavioral Health is part of health care. We see a need for this in all of Southern Oregon.”

— Michael Rondeau

“There is incredible power in doing good. The golden rule should be more than a rule – it should be a purpose.”

—Gene Pelham, Rogue Credit Union
