Say a little bit about yourself here: How does your work come into contact with Human Services? What do you do when you're not working? How do you define Human Services?

Great point, Gerry... I'd say those groups look good. Is there anyone being left out by this? If I were disabled and unable to work, perhaps? Or is that getting into other realms... I'll bow to others' wisdom about it. Once we get it defined, I can go back in and change the group description to be more specific.
One question... I can do a member search and find everyone who has the term "human services" anywhere in their profile, but unless I am their friend, I can't specifically invite them to the group. I guess I will be sending a lot of messages, lol.

This was a great idea. Thanks Amy.

The first question - how broadly do we define human services. I'd say services for children, youth, families, seniors. This includes services for immigrants, those affected by substance abuse, and incarceration. We could make it by subject (dv) or group. How broad do you make it?
