About

NUHSA advocates for human services in North King County (NKC), on behalf of its residents and the agencies that serve them. Although it is the smallest, and often forgotten, sub-region of King County, our communities are well-connected and in a position to address key community needs. NUHSA empowers these communities to meet the critical human service needs in our area and to establish a sustainable system of social and health services for Bothell, Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, Shoreline, and Woodinville residents.
