March is Social Work Month

Posted on:

The official theme for Social Work Month in March 2015 is “Social Work Paves the Way for Change.”

Celebrated each March, National Professional Social Work Month is an opportunity for social workers across the country to turn the spotlight on the profession and highlight the important contributions they make to society.

The theme “Social Work Paves the Way for Change” was selected to convey what NASW and the social work profession have done over the past six decades to bring about positive changes in society and for individuals.

Social workers—more than any other profession—recognize that more must be done to address persistent social problems such as poverty, lack of education and health care access, and discrimination based on gender, race, sexuality, or income. And they know that all people, no matter their circumstance, at some time in their lives may need the expertise of a skilled social worker.

A very special THANK YOU to Chandis Parris, BSW, and Gina Damiano, LPN, our Directors of Social Services and Case Management at Potomac Falls!
