National Social Work Month: Social Workers Elevate

Helping people to help themselves is at the heart of the work of Franklin County Children Services staff. This includes the agency’s caseworkers who practice social work in the intake, ongoing, adoptions, kinship and youth transition services departments, as well as those in support areas. All provide services designed to help families achieve and maintain safety and stability for their children and themselves. It’s fitting to recognize these professionals during National Social Work Month in March as they help elevate youth and families. Watch Social Workers Elevate, a video series in which FCCS caseworkers and others tell how they work to elevate youth and families.
