This institution is an equal opportunity employer & provider of services
Northwest Human Services has been providing residents of Marion and Polk counties with comprehensive medical, dental, mental health and social services for over 45 years. Our programs are integrated and designed to maximize support for those in our community who need it most - the homeless, low income families, uninsured individuals, and migrant workers.
We offer medical, dental and mental health services on a sliding fee scale based on family size and income. No one is turned away due to their inability to pay. Homeless youth and adults at our HOST and HOAP Programs access basic needs services, case management, peer support, and health care at our Community Health Centers. Our Crisis & Information Hotline provides 24 hour crisis support and suicide intervention as well as limited emergency financial assistance for rent, utilities, and prescription medications.
Our Vision: As long as there is a need, Northwest Human Services will continue to be a safety net providing health care and social services in our community.
We proudly work in partnership with:

with our youth on developing their skills, which is beginning to show immediate signs of success. Currently all the youth in our Transitional Living Program (TLP) are employed! This is a first in program history! An amazing accomplishment for these youth.
Also, over the past few months we’ve seen the largest utilization of our shelter and daytime Resource Center. The HOST shelter has provided nearly 400 bed nights each month to a growing body of consumers who are connecting to all levels of our program. The art and music room is beginning to draw youth in as well, allowing them to express themselves and connect with staff in new ways. The team is optimistic that this increase in program engagement will allow for the development of positive prosocial relationships, which will be vital to beginning the growth process for these youth. Things are definitely looking brighter.
Things are Happening at H.O.S.T.
The HOST program is off and running with a fresh coat of paint, some new faces, and expanded offerings. The team has been busy this past month restructuring the program to align with a renewed vision and philosophy to approaching the needs of our community’s youth. Discussions are underway to further integrate and collaborate with our Medical and Mental Health teams that will undoubtedly improve the wellness of our youth and strengthen the integration efforts of all our programs.
