Social Worker Appreciation Day
|Social workers and our partners serving children and families at ODHS are often stepping into hard situations, and work tirelessly for the wellbeing of children in Oregon. |
Showing appreciation for their work can go a long way to encourage and appreciate their effort and an acknowledgment of the tough work of child welfare.
Last fall, our Every Child affiliate in Jackson County provided a lunch for ODHS workers (Empanada food cart pictured above!) Even simple gestures of appreciation like baking cookies, or dropping off some donuts at your local office, can go a long way in making child welfare workers feel seen and appreciated. Some other great ways to mark Social Worker Appreciation Day:
-Providing coffee or coffee gift cards
-Thank you notes
-Visitation room make-overs
There are many ways to get involved! Reach out to your local Every Child affiliate for more ideas.
