An important function of the Human Services Federation is to facilitate collaborations and partnerships throughout the nonprofit community in Lincoln. When the nonprofit community works together, we are able to more effectively and efficiently serve those in need.
And when those in need succeed, we all succeed.
In an effort to know what's happening in the nonprofit community HSF and Nonprofit Hub have teamed up to provide a Community Calendar.
Head over to nonprofithub.org/community-calendar to see what's already happening. You can also submit your events to include images, descriptions and ticket purchasing information so our community can attend your events too! Special thanks to Nonprofit Hub for designing and hosting this great new service!
Those involved: THE HUB, HSF, NEBRASKA CHILDREN FAMILIES FOUNDATION, JUVENILE JUSTICE REVIEW COMMITTEE
Youth Thrive is a training that helps youth workers ensure the developmental needs of young people and helps them get the support they need. HSF and collaborators hosted four trainings in 2017 and hope to have more in 2018.
Those involved: HSF and it's members
HSF has lead the community in doing this for 30 years by hosting monthly meetings for our members and distributing a newsletter twice a month to over 800 agencies. The better agencies know each other, the better they work together.
Those Involved: HSF, Lincoln Arts Council
A new collaboration conceived by (LAC) Lincoln Arts Council. LAC will reach out to HSF members interested in integrating more arts into their services and then match their own members to provide those services - such as writing, drawing, music.
Those involved: KZUM 89.3 FM, HSF, various HSF members
With the help of KZUM Radio, 89.3 FM, Human Services Federation launched their own radio show to highlight its members and educate the community at large about the great things all the nonprofits in Lincoln are doing. Tune in every Thursday at 1:00 pm to listen and learn about what's happening in your community for ways to receive help or volunteer with one of our members. PAST SHOW PODCASTS
Those involved: HSF, various HSF members, various trainers
One of our core services is providing trainings on best operating practices and compliance issues based on our member's needs. We get continual feedback on what they need to help them run their business more effectively and efficiently and find the experts that can help them create a stronger organization. This 'smooth operation' allows them to spend more time on what they do best - improving the lives of Lincolnites.
Those involved: Lincoln Business Task Force, Prosper Lincoln, HSF
This collaboration is spearheaded by Prosper Lincoln. One of their activities is hosting a job fair twice a year, with dozens of employers and case managers getting information to each other about available jobs and people looking for work. HSF and Prosper Lincoln also keep in communication on who's available to hire and be hired.
