     The Social Work profession is guided by our code of ethics.  These ethics provide a paradigm governing every legitimate professional decision and action made by practicing social workers.  By reviewing the code of ethics anyone can  gather an understanding of the fundamental principals of our practice.

     The majority of social workers are immersed in the trenches, providing much needed services to a variety of vulnerable populations.  As a result, our perspective is not adequately represented on the world wide web. This virtual community is an ideal forum to educate, advocate and promote relevant topics and issues addressed by our profession.  Websites and blogs are the doors to new opportunities for our field.
