The National Human Services Assembly is an association of the nation’s leading national non-profits in the fields of health, human and community
development, and human services. Many of the member organizations are national offices of large networks of local health & human service
organizations. Others are national research or resource organizations or national programs.
The National Assembly is a learning community where leaders with parallel responsibilities at different national nonprofit human service organizations
(e.g., CEOs, HR directors) share knowledge and expertise about their work in this sector.
The Assembly envisions “a just and caring nation which effectively addresses the development and care of its citizens.” And it
envisions itself as a force attempting to make that vision a reality.
