Follow us on Facebook NASW-FL Space Coast Unit for updates!

We hope this newsletter finds everyone safe and sound as we proceed through these times of COVID-19.  Social Workers have always been essential, however I have seen many of our peers step up to the challenge and want you to know that you are recognized.  

March was National Social Worker Appreciation Month, which we usually celebrate together and acknowledge the award recipients for their dedication to our community and field.  

We’d like to recognize the following people:
