"We've been really impressed by the quality of the workshops that The Network provides; they are our go-to resource for training our staff." Brenton Hutson, Volunteers of America

"The Human Services Network of Colorado has always been a great resource for me since joining the non-profit world in 2007. The trainings offered continue to help me expand upon my professional development needs and interests. Sometimes I find and sign up for offerings that don't necessary relate to the work I do everyday but this is all the more reason why I think The Network should never go away!!! I have had only positive experiences with the organization's staff/volunteers, as well as the experts and professionals who help to facilitate and/or host the trainings. For these are the reasons in which I continue to come back and spread the word to my peers and colleagues to take advantage. Kudos to everyone who have ever had anything to do with the success and longevity of The Human Services Network of Colorado!" - Tanesha M. Bell, Volunteers of America
"I have found this process helpful on a couple of levels. First is the general information sharing and having contacts when we need information. Next is just the camaraderie enjoyed in sharing our frustrations regarding areas where there is a lack of resources. But most important is how the information sharing has helped my clients. I had one client actually get a job from the openings received from (listserv) emails." - Lynn Thayer,
Coalition for the Homeless.
"I have been a case manager for nine years; the CBO I work with takes participants from all over the Denver
metro area. I feel that I am fairly knowledgeable of the resources in my local area, but not for the entire metro region. The meetings have been very beneficial for me, as I have met many people in the helping field and the networking has opened my eyes to many more resources throughout the city. I believe this helps me to improve my case management skills and serve my clients better." - Angela Meislahn, Center for Work, Education and Employment
Anonymous comments from The Network's Annual Survey
"I think the Network is absolutely on the right track. Trainings continue to be diverse both in content and length... love that there are lunch and learns AND longer form trainings. They bring in nationally recognized experts and providers and are relevant to the ever changing landscape of human services. Additionally, non-training events like networking happy hours, online materials, and resource fairs offer a fantastic way to get the Network's name out there and encourage increased participation from members and nonmembers alike."
"The Network has accomplished a lot on bridging the gap between service providers through its informative and educational trainings. It has done a lot on improving and enhancing the skill of its members and participants by equipping them with needed information to help them to provide the very best service as front line helpers/ service providers. Best of all, it is helping to elevate excellence in service provision, and has become a good platform to connect and share expertise between Network members."
