Since 1967, UCS has been the catalyst and resource to ensure that the human service system meets the needs of Johnson County, Kansas residents. UCS provides information, trends analysis and documentation to enhance community-wide planning and decision-making. When this information suggests the need for closer examination of specific issues, UCS responds by providing leadership for community action in the following ways:

  • Convening people to focus cooperatively on the common good;
  • Mobilizing community partners to improve human service delivery;
  • Partnering with local governments to support allocation of funds to address human needs;
  • Advocating for policy choices that effectively promote positive outcomes for people; and
  • Leveraging resources to increase service capacity.
