What we do...
Forty years ago, in a modest University of Oregon-area house-turned-office, Direction Service was founded with a desire and a dream: To provide a place where people with disabilities and special needs would be treated with respect, dignity, and compassionate care, regardless of situation.

Today, Direction Service continues that legacy of service as a multi-program, family support nonprofit located in Springfield, Oregon. Serving all of Lane County, we are now an independent, private, nonprofit organization funded through public and private donations, as well as local and federal support.

A Message from Aimee
Direction Service is a multi-program, family support agency located in Eugene, Oregon. Direction Service began in 1977 at the University of Oregon. Since then, it has become an independent, private, non-profit corporation funded through public and private donations, as well as local and federal support.
We've moved across town
After nearly 17 years at our Dunn School, the Direction Service administrative offices have moved to 1144 Gateway Loop. Our new office will allow us to better meet the needs of our clients, as well as grow our capacity to serve children and families throughout Lane County.

Please Note: The Direction Service Counseling Center continues to serve at its current location on 576 Olive Street, Suite 307 in Eugene, Oregon.
