Kate Hoffman, a Master of Social Work student at CHPSW, was featured in a recent article in The Patriot-News for her work with Central Dauphin School District’s Power Pack program. The program puts together backpacks full of food donated by community partners and distributes them to families in need. Over 300 students from seven elementary schools receive six to eight pounds of food each week, which their parents pick up from the program’s headquarters at Lawnton Elementary. Hoffman, who currently teaches special education at Central Dauphin East Middle School, is helping with Power Pack as part of her internship for her MSW at Temple.
|The students graduated Aug. 18.|

Professionals who hold an MSW in clinical social work practice can operate their own practice and insurance companies recognize these professionals as third party providers for mental health, counseling and case management services. The advanced degreed professionals can also work in human resources, social service agencies, the legal system, private agencies, professional development, nonprofit agencies, mediation and more.
