Welcome to NorthWest Senior and Disability Services

In Response to COVID-19

At NWSDS, the health and safety of those we serve, our volunteers, and our employees are our top priority.
In response to COVID-19, NWSDS is following guidance from the CDC, Oregon Health Authority, and local government. All of our locations are currently open but with limited staff on site. Most things will not require you to come to an office and can be handled by phone so we ask that you call your local office first to find out the best way to meet your needs.
