Social Work Front-line social workers work with thousands of families every year dealing with everything from neglect to abuse or, as the tragic news of a murdered child emerged last week, even worse. The Plain Dealer turned a spotlight on these social workers last week. Monday we talk with some of them about the challenges of the work they do. Join host Mike McIntyre at 9 on 90.3.
