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. As we mark World Social Work Day today, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the compassionate and dedicated social workers at S:US.
Social workers 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.
Social workers are your everyday superheroes in plain sight. The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that they are essential workers. They show up for each other and for the people we serve every day. We salute them!
