It's National Social Work Month!

In honor of this most noble profession, we'd like to take a moment to recognize the Social Workers of our local community. The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) said it best – "Social work is the profession of hope—fueled by resilience and advocacy." Every day, social workers around the country provide aging adults and their family caregivers with the resources, guidance -- and most importantly, the hope-- that can enhance and strengthen their purpose, health and well-being.

Recognized as a top growth profession, social work directly addresses the increased demand for health care navigation, family caregiving and veterans' assistance. There are currently more than 650,000 professionally trained social workers in the United States, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts job growth to 800,000 by the year 2020.

From 1931 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Jane Addams to 1994 Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient Dorothy I. Height, Social Work Pioneers® have been instrumental in advancing civil rights and human rights policies in America. Today, social work professionals continue to influence and improve services in hospitals, schools, businesses, military branches, government, and thousands of non-profit and community organizations across the country.
