Welcome to Cal State LA’s Education & Social Services Community!

Professionals in social services help individuals, families, and members of groups and communities restore their capabilities to function in society. Often these careers include fast-paced environments, longer work hours, and expectations of staff to exceed goals and perform at a high level.
