Welcome to NDAD.org

The mission of NDAD is to enhance the quality of lives of individuals facing health challenges.
Charitable nonprofit NDAD -- the North Dakota Association for the Disabled -- was founded more than 40 years ago by concerned citizens for the purpose of assisting people with disabilities and health challenges in the state of North Dakota, many of whom were ineligible for services from other agencies. NDAD's reach also includes border communities in surrounding states.

Community Fundraiser: Declan Leehan
FROM JANUARY 31, 2017 -- Declan Leehan, 1½, of East Grand Forks, Minn., has undergone treatments for brain cancer at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital in Minneapolis since the late fall of 2016. He was diagnosed during the fall with an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT), a rare and aggressive type of brain cancer. He had surgery that removed almost all of the tumor. A pancake breakfast fundraiser to help Declan and his family was held Jan. 28 at the Ground Round in Grand Forks. Charitable nonprofit NDAD was a sponsor through its free Community Fundraisers Program. There's still time to help the Leehans. Donate online in the Fundraisers section of this website or mail a donation to NDAD.
