In 1977 Pastor Ed Sandvig founded Luke-Dorf in response to a growing need for community based mental health services. He and his wife began by caring for mentally ill individuals from their home in Tigard. We’ve come a long way in 36 years but remain committed to Pastor Sandvig’s timeless ideals of selflessness, serving and giving.
The name Luke-Dorf pays homage to our founder's heritage.
Luke - Refers to Saint Luke, a healer and patron saint of physicians
Dorf - German word for village, or community
thus, Luke-Dorf is... A Healing Community
