Social Work

Estimated read time 1 min read

Social work is a hands-on profession that strives to help people and families deal with their different problems. The exact work that social workers perform depends on their specific field. For example, a Child Welfare social worker, or case worker, will spend every day dealing with foster children, bio-parents and the juvenile courts. They do this because of observable neglect, abuse, threat of harm and safety issues. Many of their clients come from lower socio-economic levels and struggle with poverty, homelessness and substance abuse. On the other hand, Permanency case workers deal with children and teens in permanent foster care. They work to find long-term care providers or people to adopt their client’s children.
