HELP USA is supporting the citywide Day Without Human Services action. We paused some of our services to demonstrate the impact of our work. We are worried that next year, many services may shut down permanently because the City is refusing to pay livable wages to the dedicated staff.
Human services organizations and professionals improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities. We work tirelessly to address pressing social issues, such as poverty, homelessness, mental health, and access to healthcare and education. The commitment and unwavering efforts deserve our utmost appreciation and support.
The Day Without Human Services offers us an opportunity to pause and reflect on the profound impact that these services have on our daily lives. It allows us to acknowledge the hard work and compassion of the individuals working within our organizations. By recognizing this day, we can shine a light on the need for continued investment, support, and advocacy for human services.
