WHAT IS SOCIAL WORK





what is SOCIAL WORK????

Social work is a profession that can challenge you and help you to make a difference for others. Its goal is to improve the overall functioning and well-being of all people. Yet, social workers have a special concern for the poor, the marginalized, and the vulnerable. Social work is both an art and science. A past student explained it this way, "to be a social worker is to be like an artist with the right strokes on a canvas and like a scientist with the correct formula for reaching out and providing what is needed for others."
