[ARCHIVED] March is Social Work Month

Forging Solutions

The official theme for Social Work Month in March 2016 is "Social Work: Forging Solutions out of Challenges.”

Our nation’s more than 600,000 social workers have amazing tenacity and talent.

They confront some of the most challenging issues facing individuals, families, communities and society and forge solutions that help people reach their full potential and make our nation a better place to live.

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.

As we celebrate the contributions of social workers during National Social Work Month we would like to recognize the work of the Washington County Department of Social Services staff members. These professionals provide valuable services to our communities all year round!
