Oregon Association of Black Social Workers


The Oregon Association of Black Social Workers (Or-ABSW) is comprised of dedicated people of African ancestry who are committed to the development, healing and nurturing of the African community in Oregon, Portland Metro Area.

The Oregon Association of Black Social Workers are a local component of the National Association of Black Social Workers that provides a structure and forum through which Black social workers and those in related fields can exchange ideas, offer services, and develop programs in the interest of the Black community. We are a private professional culturally oriented service organization comprised of social workers and community workers in related fields of human services who make their skills available to individuals, groups and agencies for the alleviation of the numerous problems confronting the Black community.

The members of OABSW welcome your attendance and participation at our monthly general meetings which are held the second Thursday of every month virtually due to COVID-19. If you are interested in joining the monthly meeting please email: Info@oregonabsw.org.
