355 Chapter 13 Review health.glencoe.com Social Worker Helping people in need—including victims of abuse—can be rewarding. Social workers are among the many resources to which victims of abuse can turn for help. Social workers can be found in hospitals, nursing homes, governmental agencies, and community service agencies. Social workers can help people find alternative housing or other resources that will help them escape abusive situations. To obtain a job as a social worker, you’ll need to complete a four-year college program followed by a master’s degree program in social work.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
