Information for Human Service Professionals

Why is collaboration between human service professionals and animal care professionals important?

Pet owners are unable to focus on their own needs when the needs of their animals are not being met. By allowing clients’ safety and care for their pets, the clients are then able to focus on their needs and work to achieve better outcomes. One Family Welfare has addressed the gap between human services and animal services ensuring that all aspects of a family are able to receive help.

How can interested human service professionals start collaboration with One Family Welfare?
