March is Community Social Services Awareness Month. It’s an opportunity to acknowledge the important and tireless work of community social services workers throughout the province. It’s an opportunity to build greater recognition and understanding of the critical roles these services play.
Every day community social service workers provide important supports. Many of us have turned to them at a vulnerable time in our lives, often in moments of crisis. They make sure we are safe and cared for in our time of need. They work in mental health and addictions, one on one with people struggling with substance use.
