Social Workers Go Above and Beyond

For the 60th year, the National Association of Social Workers recognizes March as National Social Work Month.  It’s a time when we can recognize the work of dedicated staff and our Salvation Army case worker’s who are on the front lines each and every day, serving those in need.

Finding shelter for the homeless, feeding the hungry and bringing hope to the hopeless has been the work of The Salvation Army since its beginning in 1865.   As we celebrate The Salvation Army’s 150th Anniversary, we can see the origins of our work still rings true today.

Brian Kubala is a Case Worker in The Salvation Army in Central Ohio’s Jobs to Housing Program.  Recently he helped Kim, a single mother of three, move into an apartment.  She was connected to our Career Enhancement Center and she was able to develop work skills through job readiness classes.  She was able to secure employment in order to support her family.

Kim shared, “I was truly blessed to be a part of the program and to have workers who went above and beyond their job expectations in order to help me succeed.”
