Maria Astudillo awarded NASW Image Award
We’re thrilled to announce that our very own Maria Astudillo, LCSW-R, will be awarded the 2017 National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Social Work Image Award, which recognizes outstanding social work and a commitment to equity in the field. Maria has dedicated her 27-year career to supporting youth with a trauma background in New York City. She is the Vice President of Behavioral Health at Partnership with Children, where she oversees the clinical direction of our school-based programs serving over 11,000 students in the highest-need public schools across all five boroughs, as well as our organization’s professional development for 100+ social workers and 60+ MSW interns.
