March is Social Work Month!
March 2015 gives us many reasons to celebrate- the nation will observe National Social Work month in March and the National Association of Social Workers will commemorate its 60th anniversary in 2015. This year, the theme is “Social Work Paves the Way for Change” to convey what NASW and social workers have done over the past six decades to impact the lives of individuals and bring about positive change in society. Social workers impact the lives of people every day by working hard to improve rights of women, minorities and the LGBT community. They advocate for social justice initiatives and also push to strengthen health programs such as: Medicaid, Medicare, and the Community Mental Health Act. The celebration will begin in March and end in October, the month NASW was founded in 1955.
24 Hour Home Care works with Social Workers on a day-to-day basis, and they are some of the most dedicated and warm-hearted individuals we know. We’d like to express our appreciation and recognize their contributions this March. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you know of a particular Social Worker whose contributions deserve to be acknowledged!
