The Lane County Human Services Network (HSN) is an association of over 50 community-based nonprofit agencies united into a public policy organization dedicated to addressing issues critical to the health and human services sector of Lane County. HSN provides a unique contribution to the Cities and County by educating service providers, elected officials, policymakers and the community on how policy decisions affect Lane County’s comprehensive array of social and health programs.
Nonprofits and public agencies form the backbone of the County's safety net, providing critical services for vulnerable children, youth, women, veterans, seniors, immigrants, and others in need. These services include meals and nutrition, shelter and housing, child care, job training, primary and preventive health care, services for individuals living with HIV and AIDS, mental health care, drug and alcohol treatment, crisis assistance and more.
HSN supports this vital community of service providers by bringing a nonprofit perspective to the development of major policy initiatives. Through policy analysis, education and advocacy, HSN strives to create an environment in Lane County that is supportive of a vibrant, healthy nonprofit community.
