About Us

NorthWest Senior and Disability Services (NWSDS) is a local intergovernmental agency. We were created in 1982. Every two years we enter into contract with the state of Oregon to deliver services to seniors and adults with physical disabilities. There are other names for our agency. We are also known as an Area Agency on Aging and an Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC). Most of our funding comes from the federal and state government. We also receive donations from individuals and community groups. We serve seniors and people with disabilities in Clatsop County in Warrenton, Marion County in Salem and Woodburn, Polk County in Dallas, Tillamook County in Tillamook, and Yamhill County in McMinnville.

Advisory Councils

We have two Advisory Councils. The Senior Advisory Council is made up of 20 members. The Disability Advisory Council is made up of 15 members. Both councils offer guidance to NorthWest Senior and Disability Services (NWSDS).

Area Plan

We write an Area Plan every four years. It offers an overview of the planned professional services under contract by NorthWest Senior and Disability Services and the state of Oregon. Read the entire area plan.
