Welcome to our site on the World Wide Web. We invite you to consider becoming one of our members. NAPRHSW is interested and diligent in striving to make a difference toward the betterment of the Puerto Rican / Hispanic Communities. Our membership of social workers and human service professionals is inclusive and one eager to share their expertise to achieve our goals. Your contributions and talents are needed to enhance our programs and ensure progress.

Every year our activities include efforts to further our intent in advocating in the interest of our community, as well as promoting professional growth. We are proud that we are able to provide scholarship monies to deserving students attending colleges/universities affiliated with NAPRHSW on their way to becoming social workers. We co-sponsor conferences and support the annual Hispanic Youth Conference “La Vision”. We offer workshops on various topics.

At our general meetings, we frequently have guest speakers who broaden our knowledge base. Our newsletter is received with acclaim three times a year. Not only is the newsletter informative, but it often showcases our members’ contributions and achievements. In addition, our members are afforded the opportunities to network and avail themselves to our job bank, speaker’s bureau and professional provider list.

Our Annual Boat Ride (moonlight sail) and our Dinner Dance provide us with time to socialize. At our annual Dinner Dance, we seize the opportunity to honor the social worker of the year as well as community leaders.

NAPRHSW clearly collaborates on programs and activities in the community. Hispanic Heritage Month and Women’s History Month allow us to celebrate and continuously increase our pride as we focus on past contributions and achievements. Our support of other community groups on the local, state, and federal levels challenges us to maintain degrees of constant involvement in all facets needed to facilitate progress in keeping with our mission.

Join us “en la lucha”!
