Support specialists provide referrals to education and support programs that assist families in need. These workers may specialize in a particular area such as domestic violence or child protective services. Family support specialists may provide support for families with young children, disabled or elderly members.
Parent support specialists provide counseling services to families in crisis. Social workers conduct an intake interview with members of a family to determine the areas that require support, such as parenting education, employment training or counseling. Specialists keep detailed case notes, documents and records for legal and medical purposes. Workers also record statistics and demographic information for social services programs and may prepare reports for state agencies. In addition to providing referrals, support specialists enroll families in programs such as affordable childcare and food assistance. Specialists must maintain knowledge of support programs by attending training seminars and workshops.
