Why might you want to explore NACSW organizational membership?
How do the staff in your organization or program integrate their faith with their work each day as they strive to fulfill your organization’s mission? • Do you wish there was a more effective way to network and share information with other Christian social service agencies, social work education programs, and church social ministries committed to serving others in need? • How can your social service organization become more visible within both the Christian community and the Christian social work profession?
If your organization believes these questions are truly important, there is a place for you.
We invite your organization to become a member of the North American Association of Christians in Social Work (NACSW) – “A Vital Christian Presence in Social Work.”
