March is Social Worker Month

In March we take time to honor the social workers at HCJFS who work on the front lines to keep kids safe and families safe and thriving.

Every day the nation’s 650,000 social workers act as advocates, champions and leaders who make our society a better place to live.

Social workers are trained to look at situations in a holistic way, bringing people together with others and their communities to find ways to address pressing individual, group and societal problems such as hunger, affordable housing, equal rights for all and making organizations and government accountable.

As the nation commemorates Social Work Month in March, it is important for the public to recognize that the need for social workers to be strong advocates, champions and leaders is more important than ever.
