UPHS Report, Essential Services and Outstanding Stewardship, Now Available

We are very pleased to announce the availability of the UPHS Report, Essential Services and Outstanding Stewardship. This report shows the tremendous impact the nonprofit human service sector is making on Tallahasee/Leon County.

Please note that the report only highlights some of the agencies but not all. We used the agency examples that made the case for the five areas that are highlighted in the report.

Maybe in the future we can do a more extensive report that will include summaries of all UPHS organizations. All UPHS members are, however, listed at the back of the report.

Special thanks to James Moore & Co. for underwriting the costs of production.
