Northwest Family Services (NWFS) is a culturally-responsive agency dedicated to empowering individuals and fostering stronger communities by addressing the social determinants of health. Since 1983, our mission has been to combat poverty and promote well-being through a range of comprehensive services centered around health, education, employment, and social justice.
Our programs encompass a broad spectrum of support, including health and social service navigation, youth prevention and intervention programs, and outpatient alcohol and drug treatment. Recognizing the power of unity, we provide coalition support for drug-free communities and lend our aid to youth and families impacted by incarceration. NWFS is also a proponent of restorative justice, offering mental health services and job readiness and placement programs.
