Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapter 14: Rural Human Services in our required text. As you know from the reading, you are aware that there is a shortage of human service professionals in communities that are considered rural. Select a specific rural community in the United States. Determine the needs of this population and what makes their needs different from other or urban community needs. Discuss what you would need to know in order to successfully work with rural populations. Ask your peers for help finding you additional innovative resources intended to help bridge the gap for rural communities.
