About Social Workers
Share |

Every social worker is uniquely qualified to help people right in their own environment by looking at all aspects of life and culture. We work to ensure personal well-being, prevent crises, and counsel individuals, families, and communities. We ensure people get the help they need from the best resources available. And for more than 100 years, we've been doing just that.


Social workers care for people in every stage of life, from children to the elderly. We help them overcome life’s most difficult challenges and the troubles of everyday living, including: poverty, stress, discrimination, addiction, abuse, depression, physical illness, unemployment, divorce, disability, death, mental illness and more.


Our help reaches every part of the community, from hospice care to adoption agencies, and in places you may not expect: schools, mental health clinics, hospitals, military barracks, veterans hospitals, corporations, senior centers, public social agencies, and prisons.
 
Wherever and whenever you need help, social workers are there.
