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.
