Community Services

Professionals who work for community-based services and programs provide personal, social, physical, and emotional support to disadvantaged groups and communities. They may work for community outreach organizations, at schools, in government agencies, or at health clinics coordinating care, providing support, and connecting people to the services they need.

What Is Community Psychology?
