About Us

The St. Cloud Area Human Service Council was formed in 1997 and serves as a vehicle for connecting key players who create positive community change. United Way of Central Minnesota serves as the home base and fiscal sponsor for the Council.

Mission: a membership organization that improves the ability of local human service providers to respond to changing and growing needs through self-education, collaborative initiatives and awareness of resources.

Over 60 human service organizations, school districts, funding entities, area businesses and government programs are members. Meetings are held from 8:00-10:00am on the 2nd Thursday morning of every other month beginning in August of each year (August, October, December, February, April and June).

Meetings include networking opportunities, a brief council business meeting and education programs focused on current issues and leadership skills development. Past programs have included: member highlights, legislative updates, candidate forums, panels on a variety of different local topics, personal growth and leadership trainings, statewide organizations that support nonprofits, key local issues and trends impacting human services.

Other membership benefits include: access to training videos purchased by the Council and access to an e-mail listserv that all members are added to; this allows members to send and share information with other Council members. Annually, the Human Service Council Leadership Team plans a low-cost/no-cost training for participating members.

How to e-mail information to the entire Human Service Council: e-mail from an address registered as part of your membership and send an e-mail to scahsc@freelists.org.  The message including any attachments must not be larger than 5MB in size. In order to send or receive messages on this listserv your e-mail address must be registered as part of your membership.
