Dear MWOHS and Prospective Members, 

I am honored and pleased to serve as the Midwest Organization for Human Service (MWOHS) president of National Organization for Human Services (NOHS) and I look forward to getting to know more of you along with your interests and concerns this year.

Kristin Faix Wilkinson

Past President


Being 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 continue to expand our visibility and action in our local and national communities by engaging in online and hopefully face-to-face 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 and within our conferences.

I am profoundly grateful for your involvement with MWOHS and I am looking forward to the continued success in 2020.  I invite you to call or email me to share any ideas, thoughts or feedback to improve MWOHS.  I look forward to hearing from you and I can’t wait to see or hear from you at any upcoming events!
