March is the month all America recognizes and celebrates social workers. These caring professionals are trained to help people see and surmount the barriers keeping them from living their optimal lives, whether those obstacles are physical, emotional, financial, systemic or all of the above.

They work with those recovering from an injury or illness regain skills and also work with aging adults to help them remain independent.
