This understanding helps to social change, and as a voice for a better tomorrow in explain why professional social workers are equally which all people can enjoy true social and economic engaged with people in efforts to improve the quality of justice.

Social workers provide counseling, psychotherapy, group work, advocacy, referral, community organization leadership, human services management and supervision, program development and planning, fund development and political action of all kinds.
