March is National Social Work Month. Social workers are essential workers who are trained, licensed professionals who help people address challenging personal and systemic problems and improve their quality of life. They work with individuals, families, groups and entire communities to find solutions, resources and to solve problems. Social workers are essential to the well-being of the entire community and are an important resource for immigrants and for someone who is charged with a crime.
For immigrants, social workers are unsung heroes who help people find services that help them adapt to living in a new country:
• collaborate with immigration legal professionals
• assist with job placement
• provide cultural orientation resources
• find healthcare
• help find community support groups
• assist with housing issues
When someone is accused of a crime, social workers help them find services for personal problems such as:
• substance abuse
• behavioral issues
• mental disability issues
• emotional support
• guidance in navigating the court and legal systems
• legal resources
Chicago immigration attorney Mario Godoy said,
“Social Workers are underappreciated heroes. As criminal defense attorneys, we appreciate the work they do with our clients. If you know someone who needs help, social workers are essential for helping immigrants begin their new life in America.”
Every March, National Social Work Month celebrates the dedication of social workers and recognizes the contributions social workers across the country provide while delivering services to children and adults who need assistance.
