One of the most exciting features of Human Services is that we get to work with a wide variety of client populations in a vast array of settings. We work in schools, domestic violence shelters, adoption agencies, courts and prisons, hospitals, treatment centers, in government agencies, for profit, non-profit and faith-based organizations, counseling centers, nursing homes and long-term care facilities, homeless shelters, international relief organizations, and in the military.
