What We Do

At HumanKind, our mission is to strengthen individuals, families and communities through care, counseling and education.

We believe community well-being starts with a solid foundation for everyone. Our unique wrap-around approach allows our most vulnerable neighbors to achieve stability and strengthen their capacity to thrive in our communities.

We have grown to encompass six different areas of impact that all serve one purpose – creating a happy and healthy community: Youth & Family Services, Health & Wellness, Early Childhood Development, Mental & Behavioral Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Economic Opportunity.

These impact areas allow us to wrap around those who need extra support and give them the care and resources they need to thrive. While each has its own team, we unite under one common purpose.

Our programs range from financial education to mental health counseling, from early childhood resources to maternal health supports, and foster care to services for adults with disabilities. We bring our strength and experience to our work every day because we believe strong individuals and families build stronger communities.
