What is Social Work Counseling Services (SWCS) ?

Social Work Counseling Services (SWCS) is a unique human service agency founded in 2000 by Widener University's Center for Social Work Education in collaboration with the Chester Education Foundation. SWCS places social work interns in grass-roots community agencies to provide social work services to vulnerable populations and to provide capacity building services to community based organizations and groups.

SWCS's office is located on Widener University's main campus in Chester, PA at 17th and Walnut Streets, adjacent to Bruce Hall. We currently have the privilege of sharing our space with the Widener Child Therapy Clinic, which also provides services to the youth and families of our community. Our general hours of operation at our office is typically 9:00-5:00 pm, although later or earlier appointments may be scheduled to accommodate the needs of our clients.
