March is Social Work Month

Social Work Month

Every day in Wisconsin child welfare workers are on the frontlines helping our most vulnerable children and families cope with current challenges and overcome past traumatic experiences. In an effort to recognize the critical role our child welfare workers play in our communities, Governor Walker has proclaimed March as Social Work Month in Wisconsin.

Social work professionals serve communities throughout the state, from large urban centers to the smallest rural towns. These passionate individuals come from a variety of backgrounds, but all have one thing in common – they are called to serve others and believe they can make a lasting difference in people’s lives. Through their dedication, children are safer, families are stronger and communities are more stable.

As we celebrate this month, we thank all of the unsung heroes across Wisconsin who are working to make our society a better place to live. To learn more about Social Work Month and how to get involved, visit
