Social work is dedicated to the pursuit of social justice through direct service and advocacy on the local, national and global levels. Social workers are change agents who are creating new approaches to poverty, homelessness, mental illness, violence toward children and addiction to name a few.
Social workers provide individual, family and group counseling, connecting people with resources and service providers. Many social workers work with communities, organizations or governments to address social problems on a systems level and create social change. Social workers also advocate for vulnerable populations, fighting to end the inequalities and injustices they see in their communities.
