Human services is a broadly defined field using an interdisciplinary knowledge base to meet a variety of service needs for diverse populations of clients. A strong desire to help others is an important consideration for a job as a family human service professional. Individuals who show patience, understanding, cultural competency and awareness, and caring in their dealings with others are highly valued by employers.

In PCC’s Family and Human Services program, we prepare you for entry-level human service work in a diversity of environments under the direction of professionals with more education and experience, including social workers, educators, counselors, psychologists, and other specialists. Employment opportunities may include case management, home visitor, social and human service assistant, life skills trainer, phone screener, family advocate, youth care counselor, and access specialist.
