The Direct Action Welfare Group succeeds in doing what is often so terribly difficult in social services: to involve and inspire consumers and clients to take a personal interest in improving service delivery system for the benefit of all. "DAWG" does this by educating consumers, creating leadership opportunities, advocating for good social policy development, and encouraging consumers to become fully participating citizens. The importance of this work cannot be overstated: creating an atmosphere of self-reliance on the part of vulnerable people and families, and demonstrating the value of shared responsibility to the public at large.

I had the good fortune of knowing "the DAWGs" since they were a small group of welfare moms meeting wherever they could to help each other survive. For these 20 years or so, they have continued to do that--while becoming a powerful force in the movement to end poverty. Deeply rooted in West Virginia, their vision and influence extend across the USA and beyond. I love them!
