The Helen Rehr Center for Social Work Practice
is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2010 by a group of social workers concerned about the future of direct practice and the unique skills the profession brings to work with individuals, families, and communities. The mission of the Center - named in honor of social work pioneer, the late Dr. Helen Rehr - is to help enhance social work practice within the traditional framework of the person-in-environment. The Center carries out this mission through training programs, publications, services and projects that highlight the unique features of the profession and through collaboration with other organizations in effective advocacy strategies.
