South Bay Community Services


At South Bay Community Services, our clinicians are more than employees; they are members of our team and our family. They are people who understand that making a difference sometimes means doing things a little differently. That’s why we pioneered community-based care. Through our outreach program, South Bay has touched the lives of thousands of families and individuals since 1986, reaching many who would not otherwise receive care.

Are you an independently-licensed mental health provider or a licensed behavior analyst? We’ve rolled out a new and improved compensation model – focused on rewarding our employees in these positions for their amazing work. If you’re interested in learning more about the enhancements to our compensation structure, including salaried direct care positions and a new vacation policy, email [email protected]

The Challenges Our Consumers Face Are Complex

Our clinicians support these individuals and families by helping keep the intricate pieces of their lives together through flexible scheduling and relationship-based treatment.

Our goal is to encourage and guide those we serve toward self-sufficiency and wellness, and outreach in natural settings has proven more effective in treatment. The opportunity to meet in familiar surroundings puts our consumers at ease while allowing clinicians to experience consumers’ environment firsthand. It takes a special kind of person to go this extra mile to help others, and our team is full of them. With so many people in need of South Bay’s help, we’re always looking for team members who share this passion and dedication.
