What is Human Services?

Recent economic and public health crises have highlighted and contributed to mounting pressures on individuals, families, and communities, including struggles to access reliable transportation, affordable housing, and a living wage. While there are human services safety net programs, there are many unmet basic needs of vulnerable people and communities. Human services programs and workers are vital to support individuals, families, and communities to meet challenges and build resiliency through preventative, intervention, and advocacy services.
