Word of the Day


Social work is acting out of love for strangers in tangible ways. We are made to represent love so that all people we encounter have a more profound sense of hope and faith within themselves. We do the hard, intimate, sometimes painful work and in return bring a little more of the divine into daily life. We get to remind one another about the bigger, more beautiful picture we cannot always see from where we are. One of the most profound gifts we can give to our clients is the willingness to hunt down tissue or offer a safe place to be upset.
