What We Do

HumanKind’s mission is to strengthen individuals, families, and communities through care, counseling, and education.

Since 1903, HumanKind’s mission has been consistent, providing guidance and assistance to those striving to live better and healthier lives. Building on more than 100 years of service, HumanKind is the catalyst for community action, addressing the complex challenges faced by thousands of children, individuals, and families in our region and across the state of Virginia.  

Our programs:

We believe community well-being starts with a solid foundation for everyone.  

HumanKind focuses on building people up by providing guidance and the tools to build a better life. We are on a mission to empower people to thrive. Together we will strengthen people, we will strengthen families and we will build a stronger community.
