The Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Alfred State College hosted Human Services Awareness Day, recently on the Alfred campus. This event allows human services students at the college, as well as human services alumni and community services graduates in the community, to meet with representatives from local and regional human services agencies to gain information about the field and about opportunities in the field. Each agency hosted a display table staffed by representatives informing attendees about the agency and its programs. Local human services agencies who attended this year’s event include Turning Point, Hornell; The ARC of Steuben, Bath; Alfred Montessori School, Alfred; Allegany Council's Prevention Dept., Wellsville; Allegany County Youth Bureau, Belmont; Allegany County ARC, Wellsville; Hillside Family of Agencies, Rochester; Allegany County Probation Department, Belmont; AmeriCorps Kids First Initiative, Bath; The Institute for Human Services, Inc., Bath; Center for Dispute Settlement, Hornell; Pralid, Inc., Rochester; Snell Family Children's Center, Bath; Steuben County Social Services, Bath; Faith in Action Steuben County, Hornell; Allegany County Office of the Aging, Belmont; Kinship Family & Youth Services, Hornell; Hornell Concern for Youth, Hornell; Accord Family & Community, Belmont.
