I have been a social Worker  for over 15 years, working for both a local county agency as well as a nearby hospital.  I  entered this field with the specific purpose of helping others.  However,  I strongly believe in the adage of  ”not a hand out,” but a “hand up”  when working with people.  While financially it is unsustainable to  allow people to become dependent upon government, it is also cruel..  Give the private sector the support it needs – not just a corporate tax break – to give people hope for a brighter future. We all have a stake in the future and well-being of our country and its citizens and our children are depending upon us to do the right thing.
