March is National Social Work Month

Did you know that by 2030 there will be more than 782,000 social workers in the United States? This makes social work one of the fastest growing professions. Social workers are advocates, advisors, counselors, and facilitators in schools, clinics, hospitals, businesses, and government offices.

Social workers enhance human well-being and help meet basic and complex needs of all people, with a particular focus on those who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty. Social work is different from other professions, because they focus both on the person and their environment. Social workers deal with the external factors that impact a person’s situation and outlook. And they create opportunities for assessment and intervention, to help clients and communities cope effectively with their reality and change that reality when necessary. Social workers help clients deal not only with how they feel about a situation but also with what they can do about it.

This month, we want to recognize the dedicated social workers of NWF who provide services to the children and adults in need in our community.
