WHO ARE WE

The American Public Human Services Association (APHSA) is a bipartisan, nonprofit membership  organization representing state and local health and human service agencies through their top-level leadership. Through our member network and three national Collaborative Centers , APHSA seeks to influence modern policies and practices that support the health and well-being of all children and families and that lead to stronger communities. 

APHSA connects its members to national policymakers and human-serving organizations across a wide circle of stakeholders in the health and human services sector, as well as key partners in education, housing, employment, and others. APHSA also helps members build more capacity for their teams through access to our professional education and development conferences, technical expertise, publications , and our Organizational Effectiveness practice.

OUR VISION

Better, healthier lives for children, adults, families and communities.

OUR MISSION

APHSA pursues excellence in health and human services by supporting state and local agencies, informing policymakers, and working with our partners to drive innovative, integrated, and efficient solutions in policy and practice.
