Overview

The social work profession has a long-standing tradition of delivering the energy, intelligence, and heart to make a difference in the lives of people.

Through the efforts and energy of social workers, people who might otherwise suffer or go without suffer less and have what they need. Because of the knowledge and skills social workers use to help people, complex human problems are addressed responsibly using the best methods available.

And through the expression of humane values held by members of the social work profession, people served are treated with compassion and dignity.

Social workers are committed to helping people adapt with a keen eye on the environment and the opportunities that exist to make this adaptation possible. Social workers work with a broad range of people and the concerns they bring and are interested in the actions that will improve their situations. Social workers are employed in a broad range of organizations both private and governmental.
