March - National Social Worker Recognition Month

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan officially proclaimed March as National Social Worker Recognition Month.  Today, there are over 4,000 dedicated, caring, and compassionate social workers serving the residents of Orange County in a variety of settings.  Social workers serve our communities’ most vulnerable populations, including victims of domestic violence, seniors who are frail and elderly, persons with disabilities, and children that have been victims of abuse or neglect.  Social workers are employed in schools, courtrooms, drug clinics, hospitals, senior centers, shelters, nursing homes, the military, disaster relief, prisons, and corporations.  Social workers are society’s safety net, providing vital resources and support where and when they are most needed.   We would like to thank all social workers for their hard work and dedication as we recognize the month of March as National Social Worker Recognition Month.
