CHARLESTON, SC (WTAT-TV)- Social workers are considered some of the most selfless people.

March is National Social Workers Appreciation month and groups of social workers in the tr-county area are spending the month dedicated to them, serving the community.

Social workers in St. George say that more than four-hundred children in the Lowcountry are in foster care. They say that they have less than two-hundred homes to place them in. As a result, many of these children are being sent to foster homes in other parts of the state.
