Social work is the profession of hope. Daily confronting some of society’s toughest problems—including poverty, illiteracy, disease, substance abuse, homelessness, and domestic violence— social workers are on the front lines helping people in need. It can be a difficult job, but if you have a genuine compassion, dedication, and desire to improve lives, it can also be one of the most rewarding.
