What does a Human Service Worker II do?

Community support specialists create programs that provide public assistance to community members in need, including childcare service programs for the mentally ill. They strive to help and empower vulnerable community members to develop themselves and improve their lives. They are a resource for individuals interested in seeking emergency assistance, housing, financial help, or other forms of public health, and provide information and assistance.

Community support specialists accompany clients to medical appointments and community activities, and interview potential clients and family members using the information to compile a file related to their backgrounds. Community support specialists follow up on meetings and community activities and offer advice or information regarding resources including proper financial management or childcare services. Community support specialists play a vital role as members of an action team and need an associate's degree or higher in communications, social work, or related fields.
