The Helen Rehr Center for Social Work Practice
is a not for profit 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 is to help enhance social work practice within the traditional framework of person-in-environment. The Center has carried out this mission through educational and demonstration projects and through collaboration with other organizations in effective advocacy strategies and informative programs.

From its beginning the Center has been governed by a Board of Directors - all social workers - who are listed in the following section. In January, 2020 Barbara Silverstone succeeded Susan Matorin as Chair.
