The NHS Human Services Foundation

Message from Mike Mitchell
Chairman, NHS Human Services Foundation Board
Mike Mitchell
It is an honor to have this opportunity to reach out to you on behalf of the NHS Human Services Foundation Board. Over the past decade, it has been humbling to see the outpouring of support the Foundation has received from so many loyal contributors. Through the gifts of so many friends, families, corporations and foundations, lives continue to be enhanced in some pretty dramatic ways.

This past year, the Foundation has had its greatest impact since its inception. Those of you who are investing in NHS are getting a real return on your dollars. Please take a few moments to see how the NHS Foundation provides us all an opportunity to "pay it forward." For those of you who have given, please accept our heartfelt thanks.

As you read on, know that your participation throughout the year's special events provided for the following programs and upgrades to be made available for our consumers and at our sites, and remember that we could not do this without you!
