Social workers are in the business of helping people. In South Carolina, social workers are involved in all sorts of programs and assistance in the community. As a way to thank them for their service and remind the citizens of South Carolina of all they do, Governor Henry McMaster has named March as National Social Workers Month.
All through the month of March, social workers and DSS are going to upload stories and videos to their websites. This is so that people can read about the work they do and the services they offer. Their goal is to let people know what services are out there. They also want people to appreciate the role social workers play in the community.
Social workers in South Carolina are engaged in all sort of programs including:
- Foster care system
- Child Protective Services
- Employment opportunities and training
- Adoption services and information
- Adult protective services
- Administrative support
It takes a certain kind of person to be a social worker. This is why South Carolina governor Henry McMaster wants to dedicate the month of March to this field. He reminded people that social workers need to be compassionate in order to serve their communities. They also need to be passionate and committed. If it weren’t for social workers, none of these programs and services would be possible. Case managers take on huge workloads so that they can help as many people as possible.
DSS also has information on their website about possible job openings. They welcome people who are interested in becoming or studying to become social workers. They’re always looking for people to join them in serving the communities of South Carolina.
