Adopt-a-social worker

As an Adopt-a-Social Worker Community Partner, you’ll join a committed network of localized partnerships, providing critical support to children and families in your community; helping to assure access to basic needs, resources and skills they need to live with hope and dignity.

Many families in our community are struggling to meet critical basic needs. These lack of resources can have long lasting impacts that delay healing or reunification, and perpetuate risk and inequity. Through Care in Action Minnesota’s Adopt-a-Social Worker program, passionate individuals bring people together and leverage their contributions to “adopt”, or partner, with a County Social Worker; in order to provide critical support that improves the quality of life of children impacted by abuse, strengthen families, and helps prevent child maltreatment.

Caring Connections

Through Care in Action Minnesota’s Adopt-a-Social Worker program, passionate individuals bring people together and leverage their contributions to “adopt”, or partner, with a County Social Worker; in order to provide critical support to children and families.

Social workers see the needs on the front-line’s every day. In the era of COVID, where kids are less accessible to common mandated reporters, like teachers or regular doctor visits, Social Workers serve as our best defense against child-maltreatment. This collaboration-based, preventive model and unique opportunity to have direct impact, has been successfully adopted in multiple states. 

Groups learn firsthand from the social worker of what is going on in their community and are provided with an opportunity to respond. Those who have participated find it’s a meaningful way to serve their community.
