Social Work is a unique and noble profession rich with meaning, action, and the power to make a positive difference in the world. Social workers are devoted to helping people function the best they can in their environment. This heritage, in which social problems are seen as social concerns, gives contemporary social work its unique character among helping professions. Social workers help clients deal not only with how they feel about a situation but also with what they can do about it. Social workers provide direct services and work to promote social and economic justice. Equipped with knowledge and skills necessary to serve individuals, families, organizations and communities, social workers are employed in a broad spectrum of organizations, corporations, governmental entities as well as for-profit and not-for-profit agencies.
