March is National Social Work Month.
Social workers are called upon to help protect the most vulnerable among us and speak up for those in need. In particular, those who work in child welfare must be leaders, advocates and champions for those with whom they work. March is National Social Work Month, a time for recognizing the efforts of these individuals and their impact.
The National Association of Social Workers chose “leaders, advocates, champions,” as the theme for this year’s celebration stating: “Social workers are trained to look at situations in a holistic way, bringing people together with others and their communities to find ways to address pressing individual, group and societal problems.”
