The Chamber of Nonprofit Health & Human Services Agencies in Palm Beach County provides the only professional organization just for health and human services nonprofits in Palm Beach County. It provides a setting for nonprofits to gather, discuss and resolve common issues, develop collaborative relationships, and promote the economic and social value of nonprofits in Palm Beach County. We serve to develop and articulate a unified voice for the nonprofit health and human services network.
The Chamber membership have found funding collaborators through this organization; many have discovered the benefits of sharing resources, and others have learned strategies for grant-writing, succession planning, human resource development and many other valuable tools for enhancing their own missions.
Meetings include discussions of issues introduced by the membership, presentations by local experts on topics of interest to nonprofit leadership, and an all-important period of time is set aside for nonprofits to share information through networking.
