• Our Mission

    Organize Social Workers and Related Health Services professionals to strengthen, develop and improve the resources and services available to best meet the needs of the communities we serve.

    On June 11, 2022, NAPRHSW hosted a

     "Celebration of Life"

     in honor of 

    Sonia Palacio Grottola's

    accomplishments and love of life.

    The celebration was attended by membership, family and friends of our beloved Sonia. It was held at the Evergreen Charter School by our gracious host and Executive Director of Circulo de la Hispanidad, Gil Bernardino. The beautiful celebration included Sonia's life profile, prayers, songs, poetry and many individuals sharing their fond memories.

    Rest in Peace Sonia
