Via NPR: San Francisco Library Hires Social Worker to Help Homeless Patrons

As a clinician who devotes a substantial amount of her time promoting and working with social workers via interdisciplinary collaborations, it was rewarding to hear that social work efforts are being used in other locales, and for the benefit of those who need services most.  San Francisco's library system recently hired a full time social worker who assists homeless patrons by connecting them to services and housing resources.  This is not only a great service to those folks, but also a great shout out to the benefits that social work brings to clients.  Way to go San Francisco!  The entire story may be heard here:
