The Power of Essential Social Workers
Preserving rights, strengthening voices this is the social worker’s call
To improve the society we live in by helping to meet the needs of all.
We always strive to em power those who once had no voice
By showing them their options and allowing them to make their own choice.
Through legislative advocacy, service delivery, research and education
Direct practice, policy development and administration.
We open doors of access and opportunity, particularly to those in great need
And hope their lives will flourish because we have planted a seed.
The quality of life of millions are improved when we work as a team
Essential services are provided and happens when social workers are on the scene.
Social workers are ESSENTIAL dedicated advocates who are always ready to fight
For human, civil, women's, children’s, crime victim’s and senior’s rights.
Whether we work with families, communities, groups or individuals one by one,
The commitment of ESSENTIAL social workers can never be undone.
And in the field of aging social workers can be found working everywhere
With caregivers, elder abuse victims, in senior centers and in home care.
Whether working in government or at one of our partners in the community out there,
The love for the seniors and social work is what we all share.
So we honor all ESSENTIAL social workers who have chosen to serve everyone everywhere including New Yorkers
Preserving rights, strengthening voices-- Yes, that’s the power of Essential social workers.
