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 40 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:
During our 2014 - 2016 Strategic Planning session, the Northwest Human Services Board of Directors and Leadership Team recognized patient and client transportation needs as a major area of focus.
NWHS has operated the Healthcare for the Homeless van run for 15 years and transported thousands of homeless individuals to our West Salem Clinic campus, providing them direct access to the medical services and care they need, and improving the health and well-being of the most vulnerable members of our Community. This has had the additional benefit of decreasing the need for catastrophic/ER care and its associated social, emotional, and economic costs. In 2014, NWHS transported over 1,701 homeless individuals to medical, dental and mental health appointments via our Healthcare for the Homeless van run.
We would like to express our most sincere thanks to Salem Health for their continued support of our programs and those we serve. Click HERE to read more about Salem Health's 2016 Community Partnership Grant recipients and their wonderful projects.
