The Human Services Coalition strives to live in integrity with our vision of a community that embraces the dignity and well-being of all people. We stand ready to listen, learn, and effect positive change within our organization. We will also join with other nonprofits both to explore racism as a problem of institutional power and to make every attempt to dismantle racism in our own sector. We stand with all Black, Brown, Indigenous, and other people of color who continue to suffer oppression and injustice and invite everyone to stand with us.

The mission of the Human Services Coalition is to enhance the delivery of health and human services in the Tompkins County area.
