A Letter from the President

Dear MWOHS and Prospective Members,

The world is always changing and as human service professionals we must be ready to adapt to those changes and the growing needs of people everywhere. Our discipline is unique. It is broad in its definition, as we help to shape the lives of individuals, families, and communities one step a time. We work in the field, side-by-side with those who need help from basic needs such as housing, food, and clothing, to more extensive needs such as mental health services, social work support, and networking. Our goal is to help people and communities become stronger, healthier, and self-sufficient.

The issues and problems of our communities and around the world continues to mount. The call to action is now. As a member of the Midwest Region of NOHS, you can network with students, faculty, and practitioners in the field to learn best practices in human services and to advocate for those in need. This year, we are looking to expand our visibility and action in our local and national communities by engaging in more online conversations about social change, and highlighting the great work of human service professionals in our region.

At the present time, we are asking for students, faculty, and practitioners in our region to send us information about best practices, highlights or milestones within your organizations, and new and exciting work that is being done throughout our area. We would like to take the opportunity to share your ideas and achievements within our region via our national newsletter “The Link” and also within our conferences

Feel free to email me with any questions that you may have regarding MWOHS. I welcome your input and your enthusiasm.
