About Human Service Forum:
The Human Service Forum was founded in 1986 as an association of nonprofit and public agencies as well as individuals providing human services in the Pioneer Valley. The Forum was envisioned by its founders to be a vehicle for communicating the important contributions of human services to the quality of life in Pioneer Valley communities and for members to network, address problems of mutual concern, and discuss major trends and changes impacting human services.
Today the Forum’s membership includes 135 organizations and individuals with collective budgets of approximately $400 million and employing more than 16,000 people. Public officials and the media recognize the Forum as an authoritative and effective voice for the human service community.
