Job Description for Family Service Worker

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.
