Job Description for Family Service Worker

The stability of the family is important not only to family members, but to society as a whole. Strong, stable, and healthy families are proven to maintain communities with lower crime rates and higher standards of living. For this reason exists an extensive, multi-tiered network of social services systems, from the local level all the way to federal, and social work itself has many areas of specialization. Family service workers are professionals whose focus is on the family unit itself. In instances where the intervention of social services is desired or necessary, these are the individuals who work directly with families in order to educate, advise, and offer services which aid in stabilizing living situations.
