There is burgeoning literature examining the interaction between place, social services access and family well-being, but no efforts have been made so far to systematically review this line of research. To fill this gap, this paper synthesizes current literature on the role of social services in influencing family well-being by searching through key electronic databases and relevant journals.  Findings from this study imply that despite increasing interest in understanding the interaction among place, social services access and family well-being, more studies guided by theoretical framework and specifying social services access could enrich current literature, so we can gain a better understanding of how social services access in local areas influences low-income families' well-being.
