March is National Social Work Month!

When Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr co-founded Hull House in 1889 they, in part, introduced the social work profession to America. For over 100 years social workers help support people of every age, ethnicity, and need. Today there are more than 600,000 social workers in the United States committed to helping individuals, families, and communities overcome some of life's difficult challenges such as poverty, stress, discrimination, addiction, abuse,  physical illness, unemployment, disability, and mental illness.
