My Dog is My Home is thrilled to be presenting at the Council of Social Work Education's (CSWE) annual program in Atlanta, GA on Friday, November 4th. Founder and Director Christine Kim will be joining a panel of three distinguished professors known for their pioneering work in animals and social work. The panel will present a compelling rationale and an ethical mandate for the inclusion of content on human-animal interactions in social work education.
One of My Dog is My Home's approaches to increasing shelter and housing access for homeless people with companion animals is through training and education. We believe that by providing workforce development and education, we are contributing to a change in the way social services perceive animals within family ecologies. By changing the hearts and minds of our social service workers, we affect the inclusion of both two legged and four legged family members in service delivery.
