Reframing Human Services
We are leading the movement to change the conversation on human services in Illinois.
The human services sector suffers from continued misperception about our work, clients and the value we deliver to society. For decades, the voice of the human services community has been fragmented, each sector advocating for the work in their own narrow sphere. Yet our challenges are interlinked and today, a new story needs to be told.
In partnership with the National Human Services Assembly and FrameWorks Institute, a communications think tank, Illinois Partners is leading efforts in our state to improve public understanding and support of human services through a research-based communications model.
National Human Services Assembly and FrameWorks Goals
- Create a new narrative for the human services sector
- Change the way we tell our story and accomplishments
- Change the way the public thinks about human services
Illinois Partners Reframing Strategic Plan
Build broader and sustainable public support for human services by elevating new language in the public discourse and training nonprofit leaders on the new reframing initiative.
We are leading a statewide campaign to train nonprofits, as well as the business and civic community, on the new communications model. Our objective is to change the way we tell our story and accomplishments to make human services a national priority.
