NASW Puerto Rico Chapter Sends Message Detailing Dire Situation on Island


On October 3, NASW Puerto Rico sent NASW National a series of cellphone text messages describing conditions on the island, from lack of power and water to suicides, and asked that NASW let social workers and others know of their plight. NASW will convey the chapter’s message to members of Congress who are social workers.

Donations made to NASW’s Social Work Disaster Assistance Fund will go directly to social workers and/or social welfare organizations who can provide assistance to the people of Puerto Rico, as well as the Virgin Islands.
