Organization Description

As the human services profession has grown and developed over the past 30 years, the National Organization for Human Services has always been there. Starting as an organization exclusively for human service educators, our membership — and our mission — now en-compasses educators, students, and practitioners.

This community is our strength. Individually, we each face new and daunting challenges. Together, we meet those challenges with the knowledge and skills that will foster positive change for our clients and our communities. We invite you to join us.

… to foster excellence in human service delivery through education, scholarship and practice

The field of Human Services is broadly defined, uniquely approaching the objective of meeting human needs through an interdisciplinary knowledge base, focusing on prevention as well as remediation of problems, and maintaining a commitment to improving the overall quality of life of service populations. The Human Services profession is one which promotes improved service delivery systems by addressing not only the quality of direct services, but also by seeking to improve accessibility, accountability, and coordination among professionals and agencies in service delivery.
