The popular Social Work Helper progressive news website is offering a app that will help connect social workers and people in need to resources and services.

Deona Hooper, MSW, founder and editor and chief of the publication, explained why the app. was created.

“As a social worker, I created this mobile app because I know what it is to struggle. I know what it feels like to be a social worker and feel like I needed a social worker myself,” she said. “Part of my job as a CPS social worker was to connect people to resources, and I often had to depend on interns to keep resource list up to date which was often unreliable. I want to make it easier for service providers and those in the field to access and search for resources more quickly.”

Cheers to Social Work Helper for providing this service.
