Providing quality care and service to individuals with disabilities

Providing quality care and service to individuals with disabilities

NHS Northstar, established in 1988, provides progressive, comprehensive, individualized services for persons with disabilities and mental illness. Through Residential, Community Support Services, and ARMHS, we offer the best care possible for each client.

Through diversification, we continue to be a leader in our industry by providing a high standard of services to meet the changing needs of the individuals we serve throughout Northeastern Minnesota.

Vision Statement

We believe that persons with disabilities deserve the highest quality of life possible. Our focus is to provide opportunities that encourage personal growth for the individuals that we serve.

Residential Services

NHS Northstar’s goal is to support the consumer in the development of a positive lifestyle that is motivated by mature and appropriate choices as they relate to living in one’s community. The small natural residential setting fosters such supports and reinforces the development of this positive lifestyle.

Community Support Services

We provide community support services for individuals with disabilities who need less than 24-hour care. These services are developed with the individual, family, and team to assist the individual in accomplishing person-centered goals, so they can lead a more independent and fulfilling life.


We are happy to provide tours and information to interested guardians, case managers, and other professionals interested in our residential programs. Your tour can be of multiple program locations or a single opening – its entirely up to you. Our Director of Residential Services will contact you and set up a private, no-obligation showing!


Speak to our Director of Community Support Services about our various services that can be provided in the community or in the individual’s home.  Our support services are focused on teaching skills to enhance a person’s life by enabling them to live independently in the setting of their choice. Are you having caregiver burnout?  We offer respite services for children and adults.
