March is Social Work month. At STEP social workers provide vital support to each client coming in with needs. We have four licensed social workers on staff who meet with clients to help determine how best STEP can serve them and what additional resources may be helpful to their specific situations. We believe that by meeting with clients regularly we build rapport, relationships and a sense of community. This allows a trusting environment to develop where we can offer assistance with other areas in clients lives.
Social workers in general help people overcome some of life’s most difficult challenges including poverty, discrimination, abuse, addiction, unemployment, educational problems, disability, and mental illness. Here at STEP we hope to help prevent and deal with crises when they arise and stay true to our mission of “Empowering Lives and Restoring Hope”.
