What Family Services Student Say
“I believe children are our future and the family is where it all begins. However, children and families occasionally need someone to walk beside them until they are strong enough to walk on their own. The Family Services Specialist Degree program at SCC is preparing me to reach out and help children and families in need. Through my coursework, I am gaining a deeper understanding of how to help children and families which continues to prepare me to make a difference in their lives.”
“I just started the FS Program and I am more than happy with it. The classes are very interesting and the professors are always there to answer any questions. I have learned so much since August, and I can’t wait to continue this degree!”
