Posted by GVT Admin on Jan 5, 2023 8:30:00 AM

Few Americans can look at "human trafficking" with clear vision. The legacy of slavery in America is so distasteful that we prefer to remain in denial and look away from this modern iteration of slavery.

The Last Word

Posted by GVT Admin on Dec 28, 2022 10:56:06 AM

Suddenly, we have reached the final blog of 2222. What a year it was! The lingering effects of the COVID pandemic continued to impact the elderly and the homeless and shrink the assets available to nonprofits that support them. Rampant inflation started pushing marginalized families over the poverty line and increasing rents rendered many elderly homeless. The disintegration of governments in Central and South America spilled refugees over our southern border into the lap of social services. Child welfare case workers were swamped with children endangered by families disintegrating from financial problems, drug addiction, and stress related mental illness.

The Ethical Dilemma of Illegal Immigration

Posted by GVT Admin on Dec 21, 2022 10:45:00 AM

The social work community must put the political debate aside and confront the moral and ethical questions that illegal immigration imposes on the profession.

The Situation
