National Professional Social Work Month

Celebrate National Social Worker Month

Starting in 1965, National Social Worker Month has had a long history of recognizing and honoring the hard working professionals who selflessly dedicate themselves to improving the lives of others in our communities.  Please take the time to offer a heart felt thank you to these individuals who work tirelessly to help those in need.  To learn more about social work, please visit the National Association of Social Workers website.

Volunteering for hospice is a great way for those interested in a career in social work to explore their options, get real experience visiting patients, and help others live fully at the end of their life.  Medical social workers are an essential part of our hospice staff.  Becoming a hospice volunteer provides an opportunity to learn and network with our social work staff  For more information on hospice volunteering in Virginia, please contact Travis Kennedy, Volunteer Coordinator, at 804-282-4301.
