Social Workers are Essential to Ending Veteran Homelessness

logo social workers are essentialOn behalf of the National Homeless Programs Office, we want to thank everyone who made the 2021 National Social Work Appreciation Month remarkable! We could not have done it without each and every one of you. Social workers help to make lives better and the National Homeless Programs Office has been honored to spotlight so many outstanding social workers in our programs.

Check out the final post for the 2021 Social Work Month, a summary of all the social workers highlighted throughout March. We are already looking forward to next year!

Thank you again for all that you do to help Veterans in homeless programs.
