Human Services Institute Archive

The Human Services Institute is the region's longest-running educational event on health, social, and economic issues. It is traditionally attended by hundreds of people from diverse organizations, including service providers, advocates, funders, volunteers, public officials and other community leaders, students, and interested citizens. Institute speakers have included such distinguished individuals as Author Sam Quinones, the late U. S. Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, former U. S. Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala, Southern Poverty Law Center founder Morris Dees, CDF President Marian Wright Edelman, and NAACP Chair Julian Bond.

In 2013, the Institute adapted to meet the ever-changing needs of our region by moving from its traditional one-day program covering a variety of health, social, and economic topics to a year-long series of shorter programs, each focused on a single topic and held in different parts of the region.
