Look what we've been doing...

Hello fellow Social Workers and community partners! It's was a busy Social Work month. It was wonderful to spend time with other Social Workers at the two networking/mixer events - one in Wilmington on the Riverfront and another in Newark on Main Street. We also hosted a "Day of Service" event in honor of Social Work month and benefiting the nonprofit St. Patrick's Center in Wilmington. Social Workers and Social Work students assisted in providing free fresh produce, sorting through clothing donations, and providing direct service to answer questions and connect persons with available resources. All of these activities benefited some of our most vulnerable neighbors, including those who are homeless and/or disabled. Thank you again to all our volunteers. It was an inspiring event.
