NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL SOCIAL WORKER MONTH
Every March, the valuable services provided with empathy and dedication by social workers across the country are recognized during National Profession Social Work Month.
Social workers across the country work as advocates, advisors, counselors and facilitators in schools, clinics, businesses and government offices.
In their roles, they provide support to people of all backgrounds, to communities and to employers in both crisis and just everyday life situations.

National Professional Social Work Month was first organized in March of 1963 by National Association of Social Workers as a way to encourage public support for the profession. Then in 1984, a joint resolution of Congress was passed and was proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan under Proclamation 5167 on March 22 as National Professional Social Work Month.
