2022-23 Oversight Testimony: Board of Social Work

February 28, 2023

Children’s Law Center’s Project Lead for A Path Forward Amber Rieke testified before the DC Council’s Committee on Health about the Board of Social Work.

At Children’s Law Center, the children we work with – including those in the foster care system, receiving special education services, or dealing with unhealthy housing conditions – often have significant behavioral health needs compounded by trauma, loss or instability. Amber highlighted the
Board of Social Work’s responsibilities in resolving the current behavioral health workforce crunch.
