You can become a community hero at DHS

Calling all heroes! Do you have a desire to protect the safety of our children while empowering, strengthening and supporting families? Do you have a passion to provide caring, responsive and effective services to Georgia’s most vulnerable? Would you love a reliable and rewarding career in a growing professional field, with faster than average job growth for years to come? 

On the Division of Family & Children Services’ team of dedicated social services specialists, you'll build strong relationships with other service-minded professionals, resource centers in your community and, of course, the families you support. Working together, we can drive meaningful change for Georgia’s most vulnerable populations. 

Social services specialists are vital to the Department of Human Services’ vision of “stronger families for a stronger Georgia.” Our work to protect Georgia's vulnerable children and adults would not be possible without the compassion and dedication of these team members.  

We invest in your success as a community hero, giving you tools and strategies to support your well-being and grow your career with ample opportunities for advancement. You’ll have state holidays, vacation days, benefits like health insurance and a retirement plan, a competitive salary and the satisfaction of making life better for your fellow Georgians. 

To join DHS as a social services specialist, you’ll need a college degree in any major, a good driving record and you’ll need to pass a background check and a drug test. If you’re ready to empower your community in a role that energizes you, apply today!
