Human Service Summit 2022

Deadline for registration is Friday, June 10, 2022.

How do we build connections to bridge divides and overcome challenges in Johnson County?

Join UCS for the 2022 Human Service Summit in partnership with American Public Square. This year’s Summit is all about social connectedness – a source of resilience and sustainability for our community. Over the past five decades America has become more of an “I” than a “we” society. Yet historical analysis shows that the answer to this divide lies not in economic systems, or political systems, but in strong, resilient social networks.

At the Summit, participants will:

  • Understand the value of connecting across lines of difference and building social capital – those valuable links are strengthened by shared understanding and trust
  • Learn and practice tools for connecting
  • Hear from a panel of individuals who have witnessed the impact of building connection in their own communities.

The Summit will lead to a practical and accessible toolkit to support fostering and strengthening connection.

The Summit is an invitation to see what happens if we all take on the responsibility of connecting with those around us through fellowship, mutual responsibility, and acceptance.
