MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 15, 2024 10:03 AM
From: Representative Carol Hill-Evans
To: All House members
Subject: A RESOLUTION RECOGNIZING MARCH 2024 AS NATIONAL SOCIAL WORKER MONTH IN PENNSYLVANIA
 
I will be introducing a resolution to recognize March 2024 as “National Social Worker Month” in Pennsylvania.
 
Approximately 700,000 social workers are working nationwide and 100,000 more are expected to enter the profession by 2030. Every day, social workers positively touch the lives of the people around them through their dedication by empowering individuals, families, and communities to overcome issues that prevent them from reaching their full potential.
 
The breadth of their reach is felt nationwide in our schools, hospitals, military, child welfare agencies, community centers, and in all levels of government. They improve our communities by such acts as assisting veterans' reentry into civilian life, strengthening struggling families, and helping individuals access the treatments they need to better their lives.
 
The services that social workers provide are vital to supporting the well-being of people throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States. They have become more essential as economic inequality and health disparities increase, as the population ages, and as the middle class struggles to maintain stability.
 
Please join me in recognizing the crucial role these professionals have in improving, advocating, and empowering everyday citizens in the Commonwealth of PA by co-sponsoring this resolution. 
 
Thank you for your consideration.
