NYAP appreciates all our Social Workers – THANK YOU !!! (March is Social Work Month)
Why Social Work Matters….The social work profession has been instrumental in achieving civil rights and human rights advances in the United States and across the globe for more than a century. The primary mission of social work is to enhance human well-being and help meet the basic needs of all people, especially the most vulnerable.
Social Workers fundamentally believe that a nation’s strength depends on the ability of the majority of its citizens to lead productive and healthy lives. What drives these professionals? They help people, who are often navigating major life challenges, find hope and new options for achieving their full potential.
Most importantly, the social work profession has a mandate to identify and address gaps in social systems that impede the full participation of individuals or groups in society. Social workers have an ethical obligation to advocate for social changes that will benefit the most people.
Our nation would be less successful without the contributions of American’s 640,000 social workers.
