Stories From the Human Services System

DHS is collecting stories from providers and caring professionals about why their work is essential and why they chose their careers. The goal is to highlight the stories of our broader human services system and how the caring industry and those who make this work possible make an impact in all parts of our communities. If you or your colleagues are interested and willing, please consider sharing your story. They’re looking for:

  • Why you chose a career in direct support or ID/A services more broadly
  • How your career lets you help others
  • A story about when you felt like you’ve made an impact
  • A time you’ve felt proud in your work helping others
  • Or any other story you’re willing to share.

Stories can be emailed to the DHS Press Office at ra-pwdhspressoffice@pa.gov. Please include names, county/place of residence, and a picture if you’re willing to share. They may use these stories on social media, the DHS blog, or our central human services job recruitment page at www.dhs.pa.gov/jobs. The DHS Press Office team will be in touch to obtain consent to use these stories.
