March is National Association of Social Workers Social Worker Month (and March 19 was World Social Work Day)! Operation Hope is incredibly fortunate to have a wonderful team of MSW-level clinical social workers (some are pictured in this photo!) who confront some of the most challenging issues facing individuals, families, communities and society. Thank you to these women and men who, day in and day out, forge solutions that help those we serve reach their full potential and make our community a better place to live.
