NUHSA: Building the community’s capacity to respond to human service needs

The North Urban Human Services Alliance (NUHSA) builds the community's capacity to respond to human service needs in North King County (Cities of Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, Bothell and Woodinville) through partnering with service providers, United Ways, county and local government, faith communities, and philanthropic organizations.

Throughout their work, NUHSA:
  • Identifies and documents human service needs
  • Informs decision makers and the public to inspire positive change
  • Advocates for human services
  • Acts to secure resources
NUHSA builds a sustainable human service system, sharing their knowledge to inform and mobilize their community:
  • Report to Decision-Makers On Human Service Needs in North King County (2010 2nd Edition)
  • Tools for Taking Acton in a Tough Economy (1st Edition)
Advocacy Work
Successful advocacy work NUHSA has engaged in has helped to pass funding for the King County Mental Health and Drug Dependency Action Plan and preservation of the Public Health Clinic serving North King County.

Recognize major contributors in the community
Annually NUHSA recognizes major contributors in the communities they serve, whose efforts have helped to benefit low-income residents in North King County.

Meetings and Committees
NUHSA’s bi-monthly board meetings are open to the public, and their working committees accept members both from their board and the general public. The three working committees are:
  • Public Policy and Advocacy Committee
  • Membership Committee
  • Nominating Committee
Become a Member of NUHSA
NUHSA relies on membership fees to accomplish its annual goals. For more information, or to become a member, visit the NUHSA website or contact the Membership Committee.
