Mission & Values
To provide emotional support and temporary financial assistance to cystic fibrosis children and their families
Katie’s Kause vision is much more than financial and emotional assistance-it is a goal oriented, life changing program that offers families comprehensive services which will help them during the most critical times of their lives.
Who We Serve
Currently Katie’s Kause is assisting families in Oregon and Washington.
Social workers from both Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Kaiser Permanente CF Clinic and others in the CF Community refer families to Katie’s Kause.
Katie’s Kause was founded in 2010 by three long-time friends. They all came together in 1997 when one became a parent of a Cystic Fibrosis child when she found out her eight month old daughter had this life-long disease and that the statistics for a full life were overwhelming. One was her best friend and the third was the former Executive Director of the Cystic Fibrosis Chapter of Oregon. After ten years of working, each in their own way, to raise funds for the National Foundation, this dedicated group of friends decided to take action, realizing there was a gap in the community to help CF families here and now; Katie’s Kause for Cystic Fibrosis was born.
