Social Service Workforce Week 2016

Social Service Workforce Week will be held September 26 - 30. This year’s theme is “Building the Case for a Stronger Social Service Workforce.” Daily blogs will review the reasons a stronger workforce is needed to best care for vulnerable populations, and how this can be achieved. Each day a question will be posed in the blog to generate a discussion on the topic, share promising practices and cultivate innovative approaches. Responses to the discussion questions will be accessible on the discussion boards on the Alliance’s website. Read each day's blog below.
