S:US Commemorates Social Work Month
March is National Social Work Month. This year’s theme is Social Work Breaks Barriers. Throughout the month, we’re excited to celebrate social workers at S:US!
At S:US, our social work staff are compassionate and selfless individuals. Collectively, we transform the lives of people with disabilities, people in poverty, and people facing homelessness.
Social workers are trained to see presenting issues through the tapestry of race, culture, gender, religion, and socio-economic status. They pride themselves in using the intersectionality lens to understand and advocate for people served on an individual and systemic level. At S:US, we are therapists, wellness/family specialists, directors, supervisors, quality assurance specialists, trainers, grant writers, and more because we recognize the need to have a multifaceted approach to addressing people’s needs.
Please join me in celebrating our social workers, this month and every month.
