In honor of National Social Work Month, we salute our Essential Social Workers.
At Lane, we have the best social workers. We appreciate you Heather Anders, Florence Scarle, Tamara Dayton, and Keri Walters!!!
As practitioners, social workers are trained to help people address personal and systemic barriers to optimal living. They are employed to effect positive change with individuals, families, groups, and entire communities.
As a profession, social workers frequently use their collective power to pass laws and establish policies that give more people access to community services and benefits, improving the quality of life for everyone.
Social work is the only helping profession which requires social justice advocacy as part of its professional code of ethics, and is therefore a large workforce mandated to advance the rights of the most vulnerable in society.
Thanks for all you do!!!
