Dee Yeck School Social Work Foundation



Dee Yeck was a school social worker in the 1970s.  She was a very active leader in the profession.  She believed that SSWs are very influential in the lives of students and their families.  Dee considered SSWs to be “linchpins” and indispensable in providing services to youth in schools.
