Jane Addams

 

Anyone who has ever been helped by a social worker has Jane Addams to thank. Addams helped the poor and worked for peace. She encouraged a sense of community by creating shelters, education opportunities and services for people in need. In 1931, Addams became the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. (1860—1935)
