March is Social Work Month and This Year’s Theme is Social Work: Generations Strong

Each day, nearly 800,000 social workers nationwide work to elevate and empower others, giving them the ability to solve life’s problems, cope with personal roadblocks and obtain the services they need.

This year’s theme—Social Work: Generations Strong—highlights the fact social workers have been working for generations to improve the lives of every single American. As NASW marks its 65th anniversary, we’re paying homage to social workers, many of whom are responsible for the countless benefits Americans enjoy today—including more and better access to health and mental health care, Social Security and a minimum wage. All of which is possible because of the work of social workers and others.

Social work is also a profession that allows people across many generations to make a profound, positive impact on the lives of millions of people daily. You will find social workers from The Silent Generation and Baby Boomers to Millennials and Generation Z who are doing the hard, often unsung work to make our nation and the world a better place. During Social Work Month, we urge you to learn more about the intricacies of the social work profession and how it’s evolved over the years and how you can help members of this great vocation continue to make this nation better.

We especially want to thank our tremendous social work team here at SourcePoint for their dedication and commitment to serving older adults in Delaware County. They are leaders, advocates, and champions who make our community a better place to live!
