The National Organization for Human Services (NOHS) was founded in 1975 at the 5th Annual Faculty Development Conference of the Southern Regional Education Board. NOHS grew out of the perceived need by professional care providers and legislators for improved methods of service delivery. NOHS, with the early support of the National Institute of Mental Health and SREB, has strived to promote excellence in Human Service delivery in an increasingly complex world.
