At HumanKind, our mission is to strengthen individuals, families and communities through care, counseling and education.

Our Mission Remains the Same.
We strengthen individuals and families and lift them up to instill hope.  

Since 1903, HumanKind’s mission has been consistent, providing guidance and assistance to those striving to live better and healthier lives. We have been resilient and built momentum, awareness and success in this approach. Today, building on more than 100 years of faithful service, HumanKind is the catalyst for community action, addressing the complex challenges faced by thousands of children, individuals and families in our region and across the state of Virginia.  

We believe community well-being starts with a solid foundation for everyone. Our unique wrap-around approach allows our most vulnerable neighbors to achieve stability and strengthen their capacity to thrive in our communities.  

To better amplify our impact, we partner with a growing network of engaged donors, foundations and community leaders to effectively leverage valuable resources and collectively ensure our communities remain vibrant for everyone.
