As social work continues to evolve, it’s increasingly being used to help people in the community, and that’s what portals like SSGNR portal are trying to do.
As part of their social work portal, social workers will be able to search for their local social work program and social work providers within a few clicks.
“I think the best way to describe it is, social work is a place to start a business and get a handle on where your skills are and what kind of work you can do,” said Stephanie Zemmel, social worker at SSGNr portal.
“In a lot of ways, it really is the first social work platform where we can find a social worker and connect with them.”
It’s also one of the few online services that offers professional social workers.
“Social work is something that is always a part of the local community, it has been through the years and it’s an essential part of our lives,” Zemel said.
“So it’s a perfect fit to bring it into the mainstream.”
SSGNrr portal will allow social workers to search through their local community social work programs, providers, and even individual social workers who are looking to join the profession.
The platform will also provide links to social work provider directories, and allow users to connect with social work professionals in their area.
“If you’re not a social work professional, there’s no need to get involved,” said Zemsel.
“You can be a good friend and a social leader to people and to the community.
You can have that social support that’s needed.”
In addition to SSGNRR portal, there are also many other social work sites available.
These include Social Work For Change, the Society of Social Work, the Association of Social Workers, and the Association for Social Work Professionals.
