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 help support for those in our community who need it most.

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. 

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.

NWHS In the News
Great story by the Statesman Journal, with a very happy ending. Perfect example of how our community organizations and local businesses work together to take action and do the right thing. Way to go, team!
 One Liners | q&a with our CEO
Keeping Our Community Healthy since 1971
Community | Commitment | Integrity | Compassion
Before NWHS, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had? My most unusual job was cutting up cases of frozen whole chickens into pieces for a Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise. 

Biggest career lesson you’ve learned thus far? Choosing work you enjoy and people you trust, respect and like being around is more important than salary or job title.

What do you see for the future of NWHS?  With the continuing division between the “have’s” and “have not’s”, the number of people needing a hand up in terms of their basic healthcare and survival needs is likely to continue to grow. The great news is that NWHS staff are made up of many of the brightest and certainly most committed individuals and teams of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with! These are people who are committed to meet others where they are and join with them, one person at a time, to move lives forward in a positive direction toward growth and stability, whether that be in health, housing, work or relationships.
Paul Logan has been the CEO at NWHS for 22 years. Under Paul’s leadership, we have expanded our programs exponentially in both service offerings and physical sites, and have grown from 67 employees, to 220 employees. Paul’s commitment to NWHS and those we serve has been instrumental in establishing a strong, agency-wide culture of caring, collaboration and dedication to the health and well-being of our community.

The Core Values of NWHS are Community, Integrity, Commitment and Compassion. What are your personal and/or professional core values? Dependability, Forthrightness, Discernment and Compassion; each with an overlay of Humor.

Is your office messy or organized? Yes. Just depends upon one’s perspective. While an artist might see the genius in my eclectic arrangement of furnishings and piles of papers and sticky notes, most others likely see a mess.
