If you enjoy helping people or have a passion for certain causes, a job in human services can be a very rewarding career choice.

The human services field is a diverse industry with wide-ranging career opportunities. At a very broad level, a human services job can be a position in any field that provides assistance to people in need, particularly in times of crisis.

During the pandemic, human services organizations had to move their programs online to continue their vital operations. As a result, many of the previously office-based jobs in the field became virtual — which means now is the perfect time to search for a work-from-home human services position.

We’ve searched our database to find the companies that commonly hire for remote human services jobs.
