March is national Social Work Month.
We want to thank our dedicated staff for the important
and life-changing work they do every day to help children, youth and families.
Social workers wear many hats: counselor, problem solver, advocate, but most importantly - that
of fellow compassionate human being. Social workers champion on behalf of the most vulnerable.
A social worker is often the critical link between the help someone needs and the resources available.
Social workers look to provide hope and strive to empower people.
Thank you to our staff for their diligent work on behalf of children, youth and families. Work to
be recognized and celebrated during National Social Work month!
Pink Shirt Day
On February 22, staff wore pink to show we stand against bullying in our schools, workplaces,
community spaces, online, or wherever else it may occur. Stand up to bullying. Stand up for kindness.
