Mission Statement

To provide graduates with the skills, knowledge and ethics of the human service discipline in order to facilitate assistance to individuals, families, and communities in need.

In order to meet this mission statement the Human Services two-year degree prepares students to provide services to individuals and families in need of assistance, primarily by helping individuals acquire skills to solve their own problems. The Human Services model considers the problems of the client in the context of the environment. Roles of human services professionals include counselor to those who need support; broker to help people use community resources; teacher of daily living skills; advocate for those who are unable to advocate for themselves; mediator between clients and between clients and agencies; and caregiver to children, elders and adults with disabilities.
