"[T]he good must be extended to all of society before it can be held secure by any one person or any one class. But . . . unless all . . . contribute to a good, we cannot even be sure that it is worth having.” - Jane Addams, pioneering social worker and activist (Democracy and Social Ethics, 1902).
PARTNERSHIPS BETWEEN SOCIAL WORK DEPARTMENT AND LEGAL STAFF MAKE THE DIFFERENCE FOR CLIENTS
At NSLS, our social work staff works hand-in-hand with our legal team to support clients' well-being. Our clients often face complex and interrelated issues and may need support from a social worker to fully participate in resolving their legal problems. Our social work team is critical to the legal work we do. Join us in thanking our social workers for their dedication!
