Broadcast Your Love of Human Services Photo Contest!

Submit a photo on social media expressing why you love working in the human service sector and what inspires you for your chance to win a $200, $100 or $50 VISA gift card for your organization!

A few ideas to get you started:

Show us the team of individuals you work with on a daily basis.

Show us where you work, or a particular program you are proud of.

What is it like to participate in advocacy – did you come to this year’s rally? 

How would pro-workforce legislation help you or your colleagues? Would you go back to school through the expanded Tuition Remission program? Would it be easier to repay your student loans? What would more affordable health insurance options mean to you?

Why do you think it’s important that human service supporters come together to rally for our shared goals?
