About PCBS Services

Positive Community-Based Support (PCBS) services are important in every human services system. While they originated in the tradition of communities taking care of their own in generations long ago, they began to emerge in a more formal manner in the developmental disabilities and social work systems during the de-institutionalization movements of the past several decades.

PCBS services have the following in common, regardless of the particular service system:

  • They apply Positive Psychology
  • They are Community-Based
  • They are Support-Based
