Resources for New York Social Workers

Below is a list of online resources that I find helpful.  The resources are geared towards social work students and social workers practicing in New York State.  If you have a resource you think is appropriate for this list, and want to see it added, let me know in the comments section of this article:

  • The New York Nonprofit Press is a  news paper providing information on the nonprofit sector in New York.  They also have a job section.
  • Office of the Professions is responsible for professional licensing, including LMSW and LCSW, in New York State.  Here you can get facts about social work licensing laws as well as verify the licensure of professionals.
  • NASW New York.  The state chapter of the National Association of Social Workers.  You will also find links to county chapters.
  • The Helen Rehr Center for Social Work Practice.  This is not necessarily exclusive to New York State. The Helen Rehr Center for Social Work Practice was named for social work pioneer Helen Rehr; their goal is to enhance social work practice within the traditional framework of person-in-situation environment.
  • New York Council of Nonprofits is a non-profit member organization that works to build the capacity of non-profits and communities.  Individuals working for or who support non-profits can also join.
