Every community must face an ever-changing environment and its influence on human well-being. How a community responds can be shaped by effective planning. That’s where United Community Services of Johnson County comes in. Through information, collaborative planning and mobilization of resources, the availability of health and human services can be enhanced to meet present and emerging needs.

A Focus on Poverty

The annual Human Service Summit was held June 9, 2015. UCS released the Frame for Reducing Poverty and Creating Opportunity and issued a Call to Action to the health and human service sector.

  • Make every health and human service sector job a “good job”
  • Promote “Talk, Read, Play” with employees, clients, and stakeholders
  • Increase access to safety net supports for adults without children and transitional age youth
