March is National Social Work Month and Buckner is celebrating by highlighting our social workers’ essential contributions! This year’s theme, “Social Work Breaks Barriers,” symbolizes the frontline work social workers are doing every day.
Social workers work in many different industries such as health care, nonprofits, local governments to schools and more. Although there are many ways of practicing social work, members of the profession all share a few common principles. They are committed to seeking equality and social justice for communities and support people in reaching their potential. Each day, social workers help break down barriers that prevent people from living more fulfilled, enriched lives.
How can you support social workers?
One of the best ways to support social workers in their daily challenges is to pray for them. Another way is to send a note of encouragement or ask how they’d like to be supported in their work.
We are so grateful for the social workers who dedicate their days to serving vulnerable children, families and seniors with Buckner.
We're excited to share with you all the ways you can shine hope to vulnerable children and families around the world. We invite you to stay connected with us while also growing in your own faith.
