National Social Work Month is honored each March to recognize the dedication and empathy social workers across the country deliver while providing services to children and adults in need.
Social workers are essential to the community as they provide support to individuals and their families and help improve outcomes in their lives by identifying challenges that may impede independent living.
Partners in Care Foundation has great Social Workers employed in our Long-Term Services and Support (LTSS) Departments, like the Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) and Home and Community-Based Alternatives (HCBA) Waiver Program and in other areas – like Network, Workforce Development and Community Wellness. We are grateful for the impactful work our social work staff members provide in the community, going to people’s homes and neighborhoods to meet the care needs of so many, including the underserved and vulnerable populations.
Partners in Care Foundation has also been leading the Geriatric Social Work Education Consortium (GSWEC) of Southern California to increase the number of MSW students who specialize in working with older adults by developing “aging- rich” field internships in the graduate social work education programs. We launched the brand new and improved GSWEC website in March 2022 to align with National Social Work Month.
