March is not only National Social Workers’ Month, it’s also National Women’s History Month! As we celebrate both of these events, we’re excited to share about a new project that Bread for the City started just this year.
It’s that time of year again: Social Work Month! Each March, we pause to thank our social workers, social work students, and all social services staff. The theme this year, per the National Association of Social Workers, is “Leaders, Advocates, Champions” – and at Bread for the City, our Social Services Department is all that and more.
