HAPPY SOCIAL WORK MONTH!
SOCIAL WORK MONTH IN MARCH IS A TIME TO CELEBRATE AND HONOR THE GREAT PROFESSION OF SOCIAL WORK.
The theme for Social Work Month 2021 is Social Workers Are Essential. Social workers are essential to client and community well-being. As practitioners, social workers are trained to help people address personal and systemic barriers to optimal living. We are employed to effect positive change with individuals, families, groups and entire communities.
America needs more social workers as it continues to deal with entrenched problems that have stressed our society, including systemic racism and the Coronavirus pandemic. Our nation is also experiencing one of its worst economic downturns since the Great Depression. Social workers are on the front lines, helping people overcome these crisis.
