Celebrate National Social Work Month and show your support for the UNC School of Social Work! Every year, we honor the profession of social work, reaffirming the commitment that more than 5,000 students, faculty members and alumni of our School have made to help people in need and to promote equity, inclusion and justice for all.
Josh Hinson is an assistant professor and a dedicated social worker who embraces these challenges through his work with refugee populations across North Carolina. Josh focuses on the mental health of refugees who have come to America, many of whom bring experiences of incredible trauma, including experiences in their journey to a new home and in their adjustment to a different culture and new life. In the video above, meet Josh and learn more about his work.
In 2017, now more than ever, our communities need social workers who are caring, innovative problem-solvers. National Social Work Month offers us an opportunity both to honor social workers such as Josh and his peers here at the UNC School of Social Work and to contribute toward the solutions they seek to make this a better world for all of us.
During March, we challenge you to help us raise $10,000 and match $10,000 that has already been pledged by members of our Board of Advisors in support of Josh’s work and other initiatives here at the School. Together, we can put $20,000 toward helping refugee populations in our state! Will you accept our challenge and honor social work education with your contribution?
