We Want You
Social Work Helper is a woman-owned mission driven progressive news website dedicated to providing information, resources and entertainment related to social work, social justice and social good. Social Work Helper does not publish content supporting conservative ideology or principles, but we do welcome submissions from all backgrounds and disciplines.
Social Work Helper utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to providing news and information, and there is no requirement to be a social worker or have a social work degree in order to contribute your knowledge and expertise in helping people.
What we’re looking for
We are looking for progressive writers who want to help educate, advocate, and create awareness on issues of health, education, mental health, criminal justice, social work, non-profit and philanthropy, culture, social good, human rights, global poverty, diversity, disability, lgbt, homelessness, HIV and more.
We want writers to share their stories or the stories of others. We want writers to share their experiences, knowledge, and expertise in working with vulnerable populations.
We want writers from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines who work intersects with serving the same demographics as social workers.
We want to share evidence-based information, research and resources to our readers.
What we’re not looking for
Social Work Helper does not support conservative ideology because we believe it is counter to the needs of vulnerable groups and populations.
We believe climate change is real, gun prevention is a public health crisis, and women have a right to make their own health care decisions.
Prevailing conservative ideology promotes “pulling one’s self up by your bootstraps”, but here at Social Work Helper we acknowledge and understand systematic oppression create barriers for many vulnerable populations. How do you pull one’s self up when you don’t have boots?
We must use holistic and intersectional solutions on the macro, mezzo, and micro levels in order to remove challenges and barriers to achieve better outcomes. Unfortunately, conservatives rely predominantly on personal responsibility to problem solve societal issues.
