My mother worked for the Department of Welfare in Los Angeles as a Social worker. She was hired June 24, 1955. Betty shared with me that working as a social worker was one of the most depressing jobs she ever held. She had to make home visits and she said that many of the apartments had roaches crawling on the floors, the rooms were unkempt, and many of the families were living under severe poverty.
While my mother was working as a social worker, she was taking classes at Los Angeles State College to earn her teaching credential.
