Human Services Council of NY, Inc.
Who We Are:
As the organized voice of human service providers in the City of New York, HSC brings its diverse membership together to advocate for sound government policy, build recognition for issues impacting the City’s social services sector, and stimulate support for social service programs. Our network of almost 150 social service providers include federations, umbrella associations, advocacy groups, and direct service providers. These organizations bring stability to communities by offering services such as childcare to working parents, health care to low-income families, after-school programs to children and youth, mental health assistance, transportation and meals to seniors, housing assistance, and legal services to immigrants.
The mission of the Human Services Council (HSC) is to build broad recognition and support for the substantial and essential contributions of the not-for-profit human service sector to the citizens and the fabric of New York City.
To that end, HSC:
· Organizes members - executive directors of federations and umbrella agencies and their members, service providers, and other relevant organizations to shape and establish an on-going sector-wide agenda—both short and long-term—of critical provider and client issues.
· Develops and implements sector-wide initiatives and advocacy strategies, and promotes the sector’s partnership with government.
· Acts as the organized voice for the sector and works for broad recognition and support for providers and clients from government, the business community, funders, and the public.
