The month of March is Social Work Appreciation Month! Social workers are leaders, advocates and champions. They confront some of the most challenging issues facing individuals, families, communities and society! They forge solutions that help people reach their full potential and make our nation a better place to live.

At PHC our social workers perform a vital role in helping those in need get access to services and resources in our community.  They take on the duties of providing health care in clinical settings, temporary companionship or guardians for at-risk individuals, and secretarial-type work during endless applications and appeals for services.

Their jobs, duties and roles are not always clearly defined, and it can be hard to put down the work when social workers go home for the evening. To ALL of the Social Workers reading this…Thank you for all that you do! You are an essential part of PHC and how people in our community live and grow. You have amazing tenacity and talent and should be very proud!
