We are so thankful for social workers! Today, social work is one of the fastest growing occupations in the United States, with more than 600,000 people employed in the field. Professional social workers tackle some of the toughest challenges facing our culture. In every city and every community they develop solutions to make mental health and health care more available, to reduce poverty, to eliminate injustice and discrimination, and to protect vulnerable children and adults from harm.
Through our work with at-risk children, we see these heroes firsthand on the front lines. Please take a look at some of our past interviews with social workers in our area who are dedicated to improving the quality of life of children in need.
